Just In: Set of five Solid Oak Carved Altar Chairs

UKAA have just received this excellent set of five Solid Oak Alter Chairs;

The larger chair of the set has exquisite hand carved script on the back which is commemorative of Henry and Esther Griffith;

This was presented by their Son Major Sydney Griffith who was fifth battalion of the South Staffs Regiment.

These chairs are very solid and are in fantastic condition with just a few small scuff marks commensurate with their age.

These were reclaimed from Hamstead Road Baptist Church in Birmingham and are now here at UKAA awaiting to take pride of place in their new home.

 Church Chairs Altar Cathedra Solid Oak Hand Carved Script Rare Personal South Staffs Set Dining Seating

From Ancient times Bishops of Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Anglican churches have been formally seated on a throne like the one in our set of 5. This throne is also known as a Cathedra.

The Cathedra is traditionally located in the sanctuary of the church along with the Altar and it symbolises the Bishops authority to teach the faith and to govern his flock.

If you would like any further information on these items at all then please do not hesitate to call us in the office on 01543 222923 or email us at info@ukaa.com
