This is an Antique, Original “Bamboo Turned” Windsor Side Chair. The Bamboo Turned Windsors were typical from 1790-1850. This particular example shows beautiful age, wear and patina in all the right places. Originally, Windsor chairs were painted due to the fact that different species of wood were used in their construction. As you can see, this Windsor has since been stripped and refinished. However, the bottom of the seat still displays a multitude of colors from its journey through the ages. This is a great piece of history that exhibits the “real look” that everyone loves and it’s hard to beat.
