NEAR PAIR OF BENCHMADE AMERICAN WINDSOR CHAIRS IN YELLOW PAINT
Circa 20th Century, One signed R.D.L, the other P.M.M.
Item # 603CFR10


This gorgeous near pair of bench made fanback windsor side chairs are crafted in the Lancaster taste, the nine-spindle back with swollen and ring turned outer balusters featuring a wonderful splay and overall form in the legs. The crest rail is steam bent with tiny little wooden pegs driven through the spindles to permanently lock them in place, these flanked on either end by carefully hand carved scrolled ears. The scooped seat is nicely formed with the legs through-tenoned and locked in place with split-wedge tenons. The legs are finely turned with an H-stretcher and swollen medial baluster. The mustard yellow surface is both naturally and faux distressed, having several decades of surface wear while the chairs were painted to match a period taste originally - the result is most attractive, a nice oxidization and discoloration to the paint lending character and depth to all surfaces. Identical in turning and styling, the chairs show minute variations that reveal two different hands at work: one with a slightly more curvy seat hump, slight dimension variations, etc. To the eye without completing a studied comparison, the chairs are a pair in every sense. These are beautiful hand made reproductions that present most attractively in a period setting, being an incredibly accurate rendition of the originals of the late 18th century. For a home decorated in the Colonial taste where a comfortable and entirely functional exacting reproduction is needed for a practical seating space, this is a pair of lovingly crafted chairs built to last the test of time.
