A pair of Armchairs designed by Ernest Gimson and made by Edward Gardener.
Circa 1905.
Ernest Gimson revived this ancient village craft of making ash and oak chairs with rush seats to the true traditions of The Arts and Crafts Movement. Philip Clissett was a very skilled chair maker working at Bosbury in Herefordshire since 1838 and Gimson took lessons from him in 1890. Gimson's workshops were at Daneway in Gloucestershire and he inspired and taught Edward Gardiner this old art of chair making. Edward Gardiner later moved to Warwickshire where he worked until he died in 1958.
