A rare Glasgow School oak and leather 'Abingdon' armchair with original leather designed by George Walton. Here this design is quite radical, with large flat arms which protrude out incorporating the back legs and upright supports quite far back giving the chair a light and airy feel, the gentle tapering legs with 1/2 splayed feet gives this unique design a wonderful balanced almost feminine feel yet the continuation below the seat of the back supports giving it a subtle architectural feel and again an infusion of his own style with Mackintosh's obsession with this type of chair-back detailing. See George Walton. Designer and Architect by Karen Moon. Page 105 image attached and also see Arts and Crafts Furniture by John Andrews, Page 166.
The Abingdon chair I have for sale is now stripped of upholstery.
Circa 1900.
