About Gilly Sloper - The Chair Repair Shop
Dryads of Leicester produced these chairs between 1907 and 1937. I had two of them to restore, one woven throughout and the other just rattan. They were both in quite a bad way. They are held together with nails which had rusted through and some of the main supports were broken or missing. Creating the correct curves on the new rattan was challenging. The cane on the woven one was brittle and was completely replaced as were the canes that made the seat and back of the other one.
