Probably designed by the painter Ford Madox Brown and based on a type of chair found in Sussex. Compare it with Gimson`s chair. Is it rustic or elegant? The rails and spindles of the back have been turned to give a delicate, light touch. Despite the handwork involved it sold relatively cheaply in large numbers.
