Date Description: Antique 19th Century Yew Wood Windsor Chair
Country of Origin: England
Dealer Reference: U268


Early 19th century hoop back Windsor side chair. The best quality country chairs of this period were often made of yew wood with elm seats, as this chair is. The bentwood hooped back frames a central finely shaped back splat, incorporating a Prince of Wales feather as a decorative motif. The thin elegantly shaped seat is accented with a scribed edge line. The crinoline stretcher below (more often a feature in armchairs) is also made of yew wood. This fine country chair is in superb original condition, with a glow that only antique yew and ash woods attain. Circa 1820
