CH 50
Three Cotswold School Arts and Crafts ladder back armchairs, three by Edward Gardiner and one by Philip Clissett. These ladder back chairs are steeped in history, their design have evolved from a long line of English chair makers going back to the late 17thC and 18thC. Edward Gardiner was encouraged to take up chair making by Ernest Gimson who in turn was encouraged by Philip Clissett. Clissett had been making traditional ladder back chairs from as early as 1838, those skills passed down to him becoming a famous master craftsman of his own generation because of his fortuitous connection with the Arts and Crafts Movement and it's call to honest handmade goods.
Circa 1890.
