19th Century English Set of 8 Kitchen Windsor Dining Chairs

US$5,681.33Asking Price


A charming set of eight mid-19th century beech and Elm kitchen Windsor chairs having elegant rope twist Turned backs raised on turned legs and stretchers (These charming chairs are a "matched" set, sometimes referred to as a "harlequin" set, due to the fact that although they are almost identical there are 4 of one design and 4 of another. The only differences are in one of the turnings at each end of the rope twist and the turnings at the top of the leg. It takes very close inspection to notice any difference whatsoever in all honesty. It is most common for sets of English Windsor chairs to be "matched", or "harlequin" sets due to the fact that so many of basically the same design were produced in workshops throughout the country but at slightly different times. It was quite rare for Windsor chairs to actually be made and supplied in a set all at the same time, with families instead tending to order them on an ad hoc, when required type basis. This set are actually quite rare in so much as the differences are so minor. They are also of course most practical and as fit for purpose as the day they were made. They are sound in construction with no loose joints to speak of and have been through our workshop for a good clean and polish. They have real elegance, but also practicality and are surprisingly comfortable to sit on for day to day use. They would suit a wide variety of tables and styles of house.)
