Favourite Item
A very impressive, and rare, over-sized Windsor armchair, in yew wood with elm seat.

Back height 46.5 inches. Considerably taller than the typical high back variety of Windsor chair which is about 41 inches tall.

This chair would have been made as a special commission for a wealthy client.

As the seat dimensions are fairly standard, and it is only the back height which is very high, we would assume the client was unusually tall and slim.

Rich warm colour and good patina.

With four spindles either side of decorative central back splat. Turned underarm supports, and turned single-ring legs connected by crinoline stretcher.

Attributed to the Nottinghamshire region.
