Chair

This varnished beech chair conforms to the so-called 'Glasgow pattern'. Such chairs were made all over the Scottish central belt, however, to service the rapidly expanding industrial working population and have continued in use as kitchen chairs.

The thin lower stay rail of this chair may indicate a Fife origin.

The defining characteristics of the Glasgow pattern were the armless square form, tapering legs, a top rail inset between the stiles and a decorated stay rail. The seat was usually boarded and inset between the seat rails.
