Windsor Chairs through the ages – art or artefact?
July’s ‘art in the furniture store’ exhibition will feature some fascinating chairs from my private collection, showing the development of form and style from the mid 18th century through to the present day, featuring chairs from different parts of the country, amongst which – some early comb back chairs, a ‘transitional’ hoop back chair with cabriole legs to the front and back and an extremely rare comb back child’s chair on high legs from the Thames Valley tradition, several childrens’ chairs of different styles and a ‘Giant’ Broad Arm Windsor from the Nottinghamshire tradition, a bold and beautiful comb back from Wales and more…these chairs will not be for sale, but we have gathered together an interesting selection of 19th century chairs which will be for sale!
