Scottish George III Laburnum Armchair Of Generous Proportions.


A fine and rare George III Laburnum Armchair of large proportions and of a good colour and patina. Having a well shaped top rail, a shaped and fretted splat and well shaped arms that flow perfectly.
This big and bold armchair is made from Laburnum , a timber popular with Scottish furniture makers of the 18th and 19th Centuries.
The wood to which they refer is not the small yellow-flowered tree found so commonly
in suburban gardens throughout England, but a much larger species, Cytisus Alpinus, which
thrives in Scotland and was perhaps the most highly prized amongst the more unusual
cabinet- and chair-making woods.
For further reading on the use of Laburnum please see the
Regional Furniture Society’s article from 2017. “The Laburnum Tradition in Scotland” by David Jones.
