Picture This LXXII

Following on from Picture This LXXI last month, another brace of low-back Windsors has cropped up; however this pair bears no traces of paint.

Made of yew, with elm seats, this pair of chairs share many elements with the previous chairs, though rather than being turned, the arm posts are bent.
