Gruffydd Nanney’s High Chair from 1669

A High chair which belonged to the Nanney family, 1669.

This late-seventeenth-century joined high chair is a good example of a piece of children’s furniture from that period. The back panel has been inscribed with the initials GN and the date 1669 – it was the chair of Gruffydd Nanney, the fourth of that name who was born shortly before 1669. He died unmarried and without issue in 1689, the same year that he was made High Sheriff of Merioneth.
