Picture This LXXI

I recently came across this rare and handsome brace of painted Windsors or forest chairs.

These low-back chairs are very similar in many respects to the comb-back Windsor and double bow Windsor chair I made some years ago.

    Are the arms steam bent or made from pieces?

    I went back to re-visit the chair you made. I miss the cheerful backdrop of the Lemon Gallery.


  3. John E Black says:

    Have never heard the term “forest chairs”…what is the reference??


  4. Chris Jussel says:

    It is always a great pleasure to see these chairs with their original paint – a most rare occurrence. One sees American Windsor chairs, occasionally, with original paint.
