A wonderful large matched set of mid 19th century Smokers bow Windsor chairs or office chairs of superb original patina (colour).This matched set consists of two pairs and for additional matched chairs being made of a variety of woods including beech, ash, elm and fruitwood, some chairs being stamped with makers marks.The chairs consist of a deep, shaped back support leading down to broad arms, similar to those used on a broad-armed Windsor chair. This leads down to eight turned spindle supports connecting the arms to the seat, two of these being arm supports.  These lead down to a deep, solid shaped seat supported by tuned legs with vase-shaped feet, the legs supported by double H-form turned stretchers.  This style of chair was known as a smokers chairs, office chair or Captains chair and are possibly one of the most comfortable wooden seated chairs due to their design. They were often found in offices, men's clubs and pubs due to their robust structure and were produced in many areas in England. Many of these type of chairs were produced in the mid to latter part of the 19th century although evidence shows that they started producing this design from 1849. This set of chairs are in excellent condition for age, are of stable construction and can go straight into a home.Sizes from and to: Height: 30.75 - 32'' / 78 - 81cm Width: 24 - 27.25'' / 61 - 69cmDepth: 23 - 25'' / 58.5 - 63.5cmSeat height: 17.5'' / 44.5cm
