A charming set of eight mid-19th century beech and
Elm kitchen Windsor chairs having elegant rope twist
Turned backs raised on turned legs and stretchers

(These charming chairs are a "matched" set, sometimes
referred to as a "harlequin" set, due to the fact that although
they are almost identical there are 4 of one design and 4 of
another. The only differences are in one of the turnings at
each end of the rope twist and the turnings at the top of the
leg. It takes very close inspection to notice any difference
whatsoever in all honesty. It is most common for sets of English
Windsor chairs to be "matched", or "harlequin" sets due to the
fact that so many of basically the same design were produced in
workshops throughout the country but at slightly different times. It
was quite rare for Windsor chairs to actually be made and supplied
in a set all at the same time, with families instead tending to order
them on an ad hoc, when required type basis. This set are actually
quite rare in so much as the differences are so minor. They are also
of course most practical and as fit for purpose as the day they were
made. They are sound in construction with no loose joints to speak of
and have been through our workshop for a good clean and polish. They
have real elegance, but also practicality and are surprisingly comfortable
to sit on for day to day use. They would suit a wide variety of tables and
styles of house.)
