A set of four mid 19th century beech and elm smokers bow Windsor or Captains chairs of good colour and of large proportion, with makers stamp ‘GJH’.
This set of chairs consist of a deep, shaped back support leading down to broad arms, similar to those found on a broad-armed Windsor chair leading down to eight turned spindle supports connecting the arms to the seat, two of these being arm supports.
These lead down to a deep, solid shaped elm seat supported by turned legs with vase-shaped feet, the legs supported by double H-form turned stretchers.
This style of chair was known as a smokers chairs, office chair or Captains chair and are possibly one of the most comfortable wooden seated chairs due to their design. They were often found in offices, men's clubs and pubs due to their robust structure and were produced in many areas in England.
Many of these type of chairs were produced in the mid to latter part of the 19th century although evidence shows that they started producing this design from 1849.
This set of chairs are all in very good condition for age, are of stable construction and can go straight into a home.
Height: 31.75'' / 80.5cm
Width: 28'' / 71cm
Depth: 25'' / 63.5cm
Seat height: 18'' / 25.75cm
