With our absolute highest compliments Bay Colony Antiques takes great pleasure in offering for sale a pair of the finest early American Windsor side chairs available anywhere. In our pursuit of the rarest early American furniture forms and styles we often come across antique Windsor chairs that are very attractive however on closer examination we find repairs or alterations and therefore choose not to offer them to our clients. We find that most Windsor chairs offered for sale are either restored in several places or are not quite as old as the seller believes them to be. There are no such concerns with the pair of Windsor chairs we now offer for sale. They are entirely all original and free of any restorations or alterations to the nearly 230 year old painted chair surfaces. The chair frames are masterfully designed with pegged construction and finely contoured with curved elements providing the sitter with a degree of comfort not usually found on the Windsor chairs from this early era. Every chair joint is strong and sturdy and while most collectors use Windsor chairs to accent a room there are no issues with these chairs seeing regular use provided they are respected for the historical items that they are. The chair crests feature beautiful expert painted stylizations of fruit in a refined manner not usually found on American country chairs as traditionally similar Windsor chairs are stenciled or hand done without much artistic proficiency. Each chair has a shaped seat with bamboo turned legs and stretchers that are all entirely original. We feel privileged to offer such a spectacular pair of early chairs and look forward to seeing them grace the interior of a new home where they will be cherished for years to come. The chairs measure 17 1/2” wide x 15” deep x 32 1/2” tall with a 16 1/2” seat height.
