A typical Fruit Wood Lambing Chair probably from the Yorkshire or Lancashire Dales, prevalent through out England between 1750 to 1850. Although called a Lambing Chair many of this type of Chair was made and used as Country Fireside Chairs and not as legend has it for Shepherds whilst Lambing season was on, although that is not to say this did not happen as in this time and Country enviroment most Furniture had many uses. The level of wear appears consistant with age and use. The side panels may have been a later addition, although this would not be unusual with this type of vernacular Furniture. There is evidence of old repairs and strenghthening stretchers added to the back again not uncommon to this age and type of Chair.
