Circa 1950s, oak framed Orkney chair, likely by Kirkness. With a hand woven straw back, and top rail finished in marram grass with an oak framed and rattan weave seat. The chair follows the form by Kirkness, with arms and back screwed to the main body of the chair with brass screws, and the shaped arms have a small scrolling end. The uprights are in quarter sawn oak and the legs are united by simple square stretchers. The chair is in excellent condition and has all the characteristics of a fine Orkney chair.
