Georgian Pad Foot Windsor Chairs

Set of 12 Georgian Comb Back Windsor Armchairs

Georgian comb-back Windsor Armchairs are a type of chair that was popular in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in England. They are known for their distinctive design, which includes a curved backrest, armrests, and a seat made of wooden spindles. The backrest of these chairs features a “comb” shape, which is a series of slender spindles that rise above the top rail of the chair.

The top rails and splats of these particular chairs are derived from classic mid-18th-century Georgian chairs. Georgian furniture was known for its elegance and simplicity, and this is reflected in the design of the top rails and splats. These elements are combined with turned spindles, which were a popular feature in Windsor chairs during the late 18th century.

The saddle seats of these chairs are made of richly figured elm, which is a type of wood known for its distinctive grain pattern. The seats are supported on cabriole legs with pad feet, which are curved legs that end in a decorative foot. Cabriole legs were a popular feature in Georgian furniture and were often used on chairs, tables, and other pieces. The chairs also have turned straight back legs, which provide additional support and stability.

At a height of 105 cm, width of 63 cm, and depth of 61 cm, these chairs are relatively large and are very comfortable to sit in. As George III English antique furniture, they are a valuable and rare example of 18th-century design and craftsmanship. The chairs would make a wonderful addition to any collection of antique furniture or could be used to add elegance and history to a grand dining room.
