This dining chair, one of a set five and perhaps originally eight, was removed from the parlour of house of the late James Hamilton in Stonehouse in Lanarkshire in 1960.

The frame is made of mahogany and beech veneered with mahogany. The removable seat is upholstered in a cloth made from horse's tail hair woven on a cotton warp.

Horsehair was a hardwearing, elegant covering for dining chairs and popular with those who could afford it.
