An interesting American chair hand made in the early mid century. A take on a Scottish Windsor chair. Many Windsor qualities are characteristics of this chair, as noted below.
The common H stretcher assembly hold the thick seat. A Windsor chair is a chair built with a solid wooden seat into which the chair-back and legs are round-tenoned, or pushed into drilled holes, in contrast to standard chairs (whose back legs and back uprights are continuous). The seats of Windsor chairs were often carved into a shallow dish or saddle shape for comfort. Traditionally, the legs and uprights were usually turned on a pole lathe. The back and sometimes the arm pieces are formed from steam bent pieces of wood.
Original wood finish. We have not restored or altered the finish. Marked on the underside by the maker. This chair has wear and patina, surface scratches etc. The frame however is tight and sturdy.
