Chair #259


IRISH PUB CHAIR
—Designer unknown

This 19th century Irish pub chair is priceless, isn't it? And solid as a pint of Guinness. Hand carved form oak, legend has it that this chair was specifically reserved for the use of the gentleman depicted in the carving on the chair back. Makes sense. And I suppose he had his own special pint glass hanging from a beam above the bar. Probably in a pub called Fitzgerald's. Would you meet me down at the pub for a wee pint then?
