Pair of Victorian Chairs

A Wonderful Pair of Victorian carved oak wing armchairs, in 17th century style. Circa 1850, dimensions 148cm high, 74cm wide, 60cm deep.

Provenance: These were acquired from “The Wodehouse”, Wombourne, Staffordshire

The Wodehouse is a Grade II listed English country house near Wombourne, Staffordshire, notable as the family seat of the Georgian landscape designer and musicologist Sir Samuel Hellier and, a century later, Colonel Thomas Bradney Shaw-Hellier, director of the Royal Military School of Music. For almost 200 years the family owned the Hellier Stradivarius.
It is claimed that the Wodehouse has not been sold for over 900 years, though more than once the family has died out.
