A late 18th Century English antique Windsor armchair originating from the Thames Valley. Constructed from yew wood with elm seat, circa 1775 - 1800.

Bernard D Cotton's book "The English Regional Chair" shows an indetical example and states that this is a rare chair or "less commonly made" (see figure TV19, page 46) with spindles alone without a central splat to the back support and is in effect a transitional chair from the earlier comb back armchairs to the later hoop back form.

This fine example is a gorgeous colour and is very elegant benefiting from shaped arm supports, cabriole legs to the front and crinoline stretcher.

This is a chair that should not be missed.

Condition - as per images.  Superb colour. Completely original too aside the ends of the pad right pad foot which has ben replaced historically.
