ROPE-SEATED CHAIRS

The typical everyday chair of Wales was made of oak and had a solid seat. But a variety of pieces was produced in the Teifi Valley made of ash and with ropework seats. This style is of ancient pedigree, and is found throughout Europe. Within the western fringes of the British Isles it is only thought of as typifying areas where timber was scarce, but it may equally be the work of craftsmen who valued a little comfort! Most of the pieces are quite plain, but some have decorative features, either cut-out or turned. Old photographs show stools of this type on sale in Carmarthen market alongside dairy utensils produced by the turners of Cardiganshire.

Two 19th century antique Welsh chairs from Cardiganshire, both with ropework seats. The back of the first has a three similar horizontal back rails whist the other has a shaped top rail and straight middle and bottom rail, with turned rings on the front two stretchers.
