Home Stock Christmas Tree Windsor Chair

Christmas Tree Windsor Chair

Originally referred to on the trade card of Mr Allsop of Worksop as "Best High Chair", this is one of the finest Windsor chairs I have seen from the Worksop chairmaking tradition. Now known as a "Christmas Tree Windsor", (which refers to the fir tree motif fretted into the upper and lower splats). This chair is made of yew wood which has mellowed to a fabulous colour, with a well-grained elm seat. It stands very correctly, with a beautifully raked back. I would attribute this chair to the Allsop family, as I have never seen a Christmas Tree splat chair with any other name on it. Worksop, circa 1840.

Height 44 inches.

Ref 467
