An early 19th century West Country Windsor chair, highly likely to be from Cornwall. Stout egg and reel turned legs with a simple tapered H-stretcher. The sycamore elm seat with two plain tapered arm supports, replaced at some point, and 7 hand drawn lower sticks under a three part arm and 5 upper sticks of unusually thick-set proportions and morticed through the steam bent hoop. The whole piece exhibiting plenty of original green paint with later layers over, giving it a wonderfully fetching appearance. Minor evidence of historic woodworm and with chips, losses and scuffs to the paintwork, as pictured. A good stout and solid chair. Ash and sycamore. West Country, likely Cornwall, c.1800.
Seat height: 37cm

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.
