18TH CENTURY ANTIQUE NEW ENGLAND BAMBOO CARVED SACK BACK WINDSOR CHAIR
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
With our highest compliments & utmost honors, Bay Colony Antiques is pleased to offer for sale this exceptional 18th century CA 1790 antique New England sack back Windsor chair. Windsor chairs originated in England and were designed in a manner where as the joints dry over time they shrink and tighten up. This chair has everything one could look for in a great New England chair including a comfortable shaped saddle seat, bamboo turned legs , turned H stretcher, and a finely formed dramatic bowed back. The chair is in great condition free from breaks and all the joints are nice and tight. We can't tell you how many Windsor chairs we pass up on. If a chair has repaired spindles or has been structurally altered we'll just pass it off to an auction or give it to a few cheap outlets we work with. The chair measures 20 1/2" wide x 17" deep x 37 1/4" with a seat height of 17 1/2".
