This is a fine quality antique English early Victorian ash & elm Windsor armchair, comprising stick and a hoop back, circa 1840, with stunning grain configuration and colour, in good original condition. The armchair is designed with a spindle back the inside of a single piece oval bent ash moulded back rail. The back rail is secured to stunning two-piece saddle shaped elm seat by shaped arms on shaped supports. The armchairs are raised on turned legs, connected by “H” form stretchers, which makes them a firm utility chair, ideal for daily use in the kitchen. The stick back style of chair first originated in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. The chairs feature a stunning rich colour with fabulous grain configuration visible on the elm seats.
This armchair boasts the classic country styling; it would be at home in either a traditional or contemporary setting in a kitchen or dining room and it consumes very little space. The chairs feature a rich brown ash and elm colour. As it boasts the original polish, it has a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through the years of care and cleaning it have received.

This early antique Victorian Windsor ash and elm armchair is in good original condition. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges (e.g., seats, back and legs) but nothing significant considering the age of them. The chair joints have been glued and the chair frames have been wax-polished, by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop to revive the stunning colour and grain configuration. There has been an old repair to the underside of the seat, comprising of three steel brackets to secure the seat joint (see photo of underside of chair seat). This chair sits firm on the ground and does not wobble. It is well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
