A rather special and scarce George II comb back Windsor chair, attributed to the Thames Valley. Of very grand proportions, it sits on four turned legs which support the wonderful elm slab seat. Turned arm supports with a stick back and central solid shaped splat, all under a shaped crest rail. The chair has so much character - the seat has interesting decorative spurs to the two front corners, purely just at the whim of the maker and there are some initials carved into the seat, presumably by the original owner. The arms are well-shaped and very tactile. Minor repairs, signs of age and minor evidence of historic worm further add to the character. Elm and ash. c.1720

Dr Bernard Cotton suggests that Windsors of this type with turned legs emerged before similar examples with cabriole legs, therefore dating it to circa 1720-1740. (Cotton, B.D., The English Regional Chair, Woodbridge: ACC, pg 46, figTV16).

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
