In some types of Yorkshire tables the stretchers are splat-form, like a ladder-back chair.
A chair termed the "ladder-back" was in use in France at the same time.
The ladder-back chairs he designated for his guests were beautiful.
The ladder-back chair is, as its name denotes, decorated with horizontal supports, ladder fashion.
Rag rugs lay upon the floor, a table occupied the centre of the living room, and around it were four ladder-back chairs.
