Lot Essay

Samuel Pring was a chairmaker who worked in the workshops of Thomas Miles of Bedminster, Bristol, in the early years of the 20th Century until the closure of the firm. His strike appears in conjunction with the strike of Thomas Miles on a complete set of chairs which were made for the Bristol School for the Blind and are now in the Cotton Collection at the Geffrye Museum, London. Although this model of chair was produced throughout the Thames Valley the double swelling to the side stretchers and the shape of the seat give it a characteristic West Country origin.
