MINIATURE HANDMADE AMERICAN WINDSOR BOWBACK SIDE CHAIR
Recently crafted, underside signed "J.M.M"
Item #  411PZH08P


A particularly well crafted piece, this is a perfect replica of a full sized American Windsor bowback side chair - the level of detail is truly above reproach.  The hoop back is steam bent and channeled along the outer edge to create a clean line; each of the nine spindles swell before tapering through the crest rail, locking in place with minuscule split-wedge tenons.  The seat is shield shaped and flawlessly carved to exactly replicate the comfortable form of an original windsor seat, the back with a "rain-gutter" around the sunk spindles.  The delightfully turned and splayed legs tenon through the seat, again joining permanently without need of glue using the split-wedge method.

There are only a handful of makers of these miniature chairs and they are never inexpensive, but are fascinating little objects built to last lifetimes and are a marvelous show of skill. 

Measurements:  12 3/4" H x 6 3/8" W x 5 7/8" D
