Terms of purchase


Two William Morris ebonized Sussex armchairs in excellent condition with original finish and rush seats. These chairs (made by Morris & Co circa 1865-1885) are named after a type of country chair found in Sussex, which inspired their turned beech frames and rush seats.

Can be combined with the similar set of four armchairs (item ref. M009A) for a set of six dining chairs (see last two images). Can function as host and hostess seating as this pair is slightly larger and taller than the similar set of four.

Period: 19th Century
Condition: ExcellentWear consistent with age and use. Minor losses and fading to ebonized finish from natural age and wear.
Materials: Ebonized turned beech and rush.
Ref number: M009B
