The Merry Chairs of Windsor

Rarely has a piece of furniture enjoyed such wide popularity as the Windsor chair. Virtually every period American chair maker produced them and a goodly number of design variations were developed. Most native craftsmen saw the inherent appeal in the Windsor chair's broad seat and supportive spindled back which provided remarkable comfort. These early American craftsmen began to express themselves artistically – giving way to Birdcage Windsors, Bowback Windsors, Continuous Chairs, Fan Back and many other variations.
