A rare oak chair designed by Sir Robert Lorimer and probably made by William Wheeler of Arncroach. This arts & crafts interpretation of a Scottish vernacular style has a ‘Bible’ drawer to the seat and has a traditional pegged construction.
Only 3 versions of this chair are known to exist, one is at Kellie Castle in Fife which was Lorimer’s family home and is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland and the other was in Lorimer’s house, Gibliston and is now in the National Museum of Scotland Collection.
David Jones illustrated the Kellie chair in his article ‘Robert Lorimer’s Use of Timber’ for the Regional Furniture Society 2017.
