This chair follows the so-called 'Glasgow pattern'. Such chairs were made all over the Scottish central belt to service the rapidly expanding industrial working population.

Wooden chair, painted black, with a flat seat, 1850 - 1900

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