Adult Antique Windsor Chairs

One of our specialities is Antique Windsor Chairs. We have probably the largest stock of Yew Wood Windsor chairs and armchairs in the UK.

Adult yew wood Windsor chairs were always highly-valued, and beyond the budget of many households, for whom ash and elm Windsor chairs were a popular alternative. We mainly stock yew wood Windsor chairs, although we do also have some ash and elm Windsor chairs.

Windsor chairs were first made in the 18th century, but examples before about 1790 are rare. Most of the Windsor chairs you will see are 19th century.

Windsor chairs were made in different areas of England, and each area developed its own individual style and design characteristics. The antique Windsor chairs we stock are mainly from Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and the Thames Valley region.

We only buy chairs which are of a high standard. Inevitably small minor repairs are sometimes required as chairs tend to get heavy usage. If any work is required we use a specialist restorer who only repairs antique Windsor chairs for a living. It is a highly skilled job, and there are few people in the country able to do it well.
