Lambing chair

Lambing chair

The lambing chair is a wood boxed form of winged arm chair rarely having upholstery. Storage under the seat is common as a drawer or compartment.

The historic "lambing" chair is an example of regional vernacular furniture prevalent in the Lancashire and Yorkshire Dales in England, c. 1750-1850. The name derived from the prevalence of sheep farming in the region where the chair was used by shepherds at lambing time.

The great variety of individual designs found in this group of chairs suggests that they were made by cabinet makers or carpenters for an individual order, rather than working in the tradition of the turner who made many chairs in the same design.
