Description

Nobody knows when the first Windsor style chairs were made, but it’s certain that chairs utilizing legs and spindles for a back-rest fitted to a solid plank seat have been crafted for centuries. In rural Wales, Ireland and the west counties of England, folk art vernacular Windsors were produced throughout the 1800’s that often have a sculptural presence and informal visual appeal that is very different from more sophisticated professionally produced Windsors. These “rustic Windsors” -- which our friend John Brown called “stick Windsors” -- were generally made by part-time chairmakers who were also farmers or perhaps boat builders or wagon makers.
