The posts with thumb-shaped finials and compressed ring turnings, receive the arms that conform stylistically to the back. The shaped seat raised on turned legs, joined by box stretcher.

Pair of Bow Back Windsor Armchairs
Boston, Massachusetts
Circa 1800
(See American Windsor Chairs by Nancy Goyne Evans, figs. 6-213-215). - SOLD


Antique Matched Pair of Windsor Armchairs, Rhode Island, Circa 1800, pair view

The heavy, square-cornered, S-curved arm supports on bow-back armchairs originated in Boston; an interpretation of the Philadelphia model (as discussed in Evans) with variation in the arm supports. The bamboo spindles of Boston chairs are also better modeled, and the bow waists are more pinched. The bow faces mimic the Philadelphia model, being crowned with a scratch bead at either edge. More typical of New England work is the flat bow face with scratch beads.

Please note that there is some variation in the subject chairs when compared to those published within American Windsor Chairs, although the two documented chairs in the book are from the same shop-William Seaver and Nathaniel (not James) Frost-one of several Boston shops active during this period. The seat shaping and the proportions of the bamboo legs vary from shop to shop.

There is only one other instance of the use of squared, S-curved arm posts in American Windsor Chairs, and that is in the Rhode Island chairs of fig. 6-16. These chairs are 20 years earlier in date, however, and they represent a short-lived independent interpretation, which probably owes more to English than to American design.
