"Attributed To J & R Prior, Uxbridge"

(The prior family of Uxbridge, Middlesex are exceptionally
well known for being high quality chair makers throughout
the second half of the 18th century and then the early 19th
century. The family business was started in the 18th century
by John Prior, who passed away in 1816, and he had two
sons John Jnr and Robert. Robert took on the running
of the firm from his father but it is common to find either, or
both of the brothers names stamped onto high quality Windsor
chairs. The use of high quality woods like Yew, the bell
shaped seats, and the unusual triple splats to the back
are all characteristics which help to attribute these
unstamped chairs to the "Prior" family firm).
