Windsor Continuous Armchairs, Pair, Classic Rhode Island Harmony Circa 1780

This pair of well-balanced armchairs features gracefully curved double incised bows pierced by thirteen swelled and tapered spindles; the bow ending in scrolled arm terminals supported on robust turned arm-posts displaying classic Rhode Island turning. The carved seats are rounded at back and have a chamfered bottom rear edge; incised gutter centering spindles… where let into seat. The front edge of saddle seats are sharply undercut and canted and are centered by pronounced pontils. The seats are raised on perfectly splayed vigorously turned, swelled, and tapered legs joined by “H” stretcher system; the swelled center section centered by turned rings with collars.

The baluster turnings with long necks and down-weighted bodies were favored by Rhode Island makers. These attractive and functional chairs are in a very old refinish and remain in fine original condition.
