They were often made to measure and this is why you see many similar in design but are different sizes. Their seats are beautifully figured, shaped in solid wood and are extremely comfortable due to the many years of use and wear. The out swept arms that were formed from steam bent pieces of wood giving a lovely curved shape, from the hundreds of years of use these arms become smooth and wonderful to feel.
Some of the nicest examples also have steam bent crinoline stretchers. There is something wonderful about sitting on an antique Windsor chair that has been used for over 200 years, as they come with the rich patina, character and colour that only develops with time and use. These types of chairs always have old repairs, the frames will have moved usually around the stretchers, all of my chairs are fully checked, the frames are glued and clamped by the in house carpenter as required, they will be 100% solid stable and ready to go. This pair are in Burr Yew with a solid Elm seat pads, you can tell they are hand sawn by the cut lines to the underside of the bases, the seats have a beautiful patina, these really are art furniture at its best.Height:- 91cm & 89.5cm.
