A high-back double bow elbow chair made from yew wood. The central splat has a fretted wheel design. With crook arms and shaped seat.

Windsor Chairs: The term Windsor Chair is used to describe wooden chairs whose axis of construction is the seat - the legs are jointed up into the underside of the seat board and the superstructure of the chair is jointed into the top of the seat board. The most likely reason for the name is that they were being made in the Thames Valley area and Windsor was distribution centre from where they were transported to London and elsewhere.
