1725-1740 British Chair at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London - From the curators' comments: "Rush seats were common in the 18th and 19th centuries, even for fashionable chairs such as this. Rush was a cheap but visually appealing and comfortable material for a seat. Itinerant rush-makers replaced rush seats when they wore out, but following the decline in this craft, many chairs which were originally rushed have had their rush replaced with upholstery."
