Authentic James Chapman-Taylor (1878 - 1958) Dining Suite

L 6'1" (1850mm) x
W 2'10" (860mm) x
H 2'6" (760mm)

Includes:

* Table
* 2 x 'King-style' high back chairs

The leather has some minor tears & minor paint marks, but would come up great if reconditioned.
The table surface has some minor surface scratches, but again, with some (knowledgable know-how) would come up amazing.

This table was in a luxury lodge, that my parents used to run in Taupo.

Chapman-Taylor is best known for his domestic architecture. His career spanned nearly 60 years, during which period he designed and built some 84 houses. For the most part he was influenced by the ideas of the English Arts and Crafts movement, which promoted a return to the simple, traditional English cottage style, with interior features in adzed timber, whitewashed plaster walls, large beams and lintels, small framed windows and hand-crafted fittings.

During his early years in Wellington he used the Australian native timber jarrah almost exclusively for interior surfaces and furniture, and his preference for this heavy dark wood earned him the nickname 'Jarrah-Taylor'.

Take advantage of this rare oppurtunity!!!
