Pair of early 19th century fruitwood deportment chairs, the bar backs above rectangular seats and raised on square section tapering legs united by stretchers.This model of chair is also sometimes called  a punishment chair. Whether they were made to force children to sit and walk with a straight back or to punish an ill-behaving youngster is academic and open to discussion. It is very rare however to find a pair and although they came together from a private collection, it is not known whether they started life being made for one home or were just a standard model from one chairmaker. They do have a lovely warm colour and pleasing patina.
