FANTASTIC SET OF 6 THUMB BACK PINE ANTIQUE WINDSOR CHAIRS W/ BAMBOO TURNED LEGS
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 we're proud to offer for sale this exceptional set of 6 19th century bamboo turned thumb back windsor chairs. This is a true set of 6 windsors free from condition issues and repairs. We've gone over these extensively and are happy to say they're one of the cleanest, purest, sets with an exceptional amount of character. Good sets of windsors like these regularly realize $500 a chair at any of Americas premier auctions. We don't put our clients through hoops & gimmicks to purchase our furniture. We pride ourselves in offering fresh to market period antiques of the highest quality.
The chairs have faux bamboo turned legs with a cross stretcher for extra support & stability. The legs are tight and correct showing no evidence of ever being off the seat base. The seats have an incised carving around the edge and a shaped saddle seat. This makes a big difference in comfort opposed to flat plank seats. Each seat was hand planed to contour the human body. These chairs have exceptional true wear patterns that add to the charm. They've held many guests over their ~150 year life. This is what we love about antiques, we own them at this time and most will continue past our lives and be cherished again and again. The spindles have a complex splay along the upper 1/3 of the back. These were evidently made by a very skilled hand. Even the very best windsor chair makers of today would be hard pressed to recreate these. The crest rails are molded with a stepped design. This is one of the best sets we've had the pleasure of offering in quite some time we're sure they'll find a good home soon.
