Westcountry Windsor Armchair
An attractive and characterful three-part arm Windsor chair in elm, birch and ash. Dating from around 1830, it is likely from the Culm Valley area of mid Devon. Although unstamped, it bears uncanny resemblances to the chairs made by Frost and Jenkins, active in this area around this date.
It has a gnarly old solid elm seat and broad outswept arms, also in elm. The steam bent ash hoop is supported by hand drawn birch spindles and crooked arm supports, all raised on turned birch legs with simple ‘H’ stretcher. A lovely colour and great patina.
