Antique Elm Comb Back Windsor Armchair


A beautiful early Elm Comb Back Windsor armchair. Circa 1840 this exceptional chair is pure quality. 

Fabulous history and patina to this fabulous piece of furniture. The first Windsors were of the comb back variety. By the 18th century steam bending was being used to produce the characteristic "bow" of the Windsor chair. The first chairs  made this way were shipped to London from the market town of Windsor, Berkshire in 1724.
