A yew wood low-back chair with an elm seat, which has the same splat design as our low-back chairs and one of our high-back chairs, is depicted in Michael Harding-Hill’s 'Windsor Chairs: An Illustrated Celebration' (Antique Collectors’ Club, 2003), p.94. This chair is stamped ‘J Gabbitass’. Harding-Hill states that Gabbitass was possibly the first maker of Windsor chairs in Worksop. (See 'The English Regional Chair' by Bernard D. Cotton, pp.168-169, for a study of the Gabbitass family of chair makers).
A yew wood low-back chair, with a similar splat design to the one of our high-back chairs, is illustrated in Michael Harding-Hill’s 'Windsor Chairs: An Illustrated Celebration' (Antique Collectors’ Club, 2003), p.114, which Harding-Hill identifies as originating from Nottinghamshire.
