An armchair of Windsor construction but of a design that is unique to the South Devon village of Yealmpton. Based on the design of similar side chairs, but of stouter proportions, it has two steam bent arms, of pleasing shape, attached, or ‘applied’ to the backrest and seat, hence the name that is commonly given to this design of chair. Faux bamboo legs, blind morticed into the elm seat of a waisted shape, the backrest of elliptical hand drawn spindles, pegged into the front of the hoop and with the added support of a twin spindle brace behind. The whole piece in a nice pale colour. Yealmpton, Devon, c.1830s. With repairs as shown.

Cunningham White's specialises in West Country Windsor chairs, specifically those from Devon and Cornwall. We also have a collection of folk art pieces and other antiques from the West Country and further afield that we feel compliment our inventory. Run from our home town of Totnes in South Devon, we are perfectly placed to uncover rare and desirable pieces from the region.

All our stock is sympathetically restored, where needed. We want all the furniture we sell to be enjoyed and used every day for years to come. We always leave pieces as original as possible though - we like our pieces to tell a story and don't try to hide this in any way.
