A fantastic example of a late 18th century Thames Valley Windsor chair with applied rocking bows. Of grand proportions, it has a wonderful patina with plenty of old red stain and later black/brown. Constructed predominantly from fruitwood, oak and ash, it is a solid and stout chair. The two rocker bows support deeply turned legs which are morticed into the shaped slab seat. The turned arm supports and short stick lower back with a generous outswept arm bow. Above is a central pierced splat in the ‘Country Chippendale’ style with three simple sticks either side, all supporting a nicely shaped crest rail. WIth the expected old repairs and age-related wear. Comfortable with a pleasing rock. Perfect next to the inglenook! English, c 1770.

The last photo pictures it with a standard adult size Yealmpton side chair.

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.
