Pair of Antique Yew Wood Windsor Side Chairs.

DescriptionPair of early 19th century hoop back Windsor side chairs. The best quality country chairs of this period were often made of yew wood with elm seats, such as this pair. They are finely made. The thin elegantly shaped seats are accented with a scribed edge line. Crinoline stretchers below (more often a feature in armchairs) are also of yew. The central shaped back splat has the Prince of Wales' feathers as a decorative motif. These chairs have cared for, being in lovely original condition with a clean surface and deep honey tones. Circa 1820.
