The back rail is secured to stunning single piece saddle shaped elm seats by shaped arms on shaped supports.

Condition Report:
These antique Victorian Windsor ash and elm armchairs are in excellent original condition overall. Nominal old use marks to the leading edges (e.g., seats, back and legs) but nothing significant considering the age of them. The chair joints have been glued and the chair frames have been wax-polished, by hand, to a professional standard, in our workshop to revive the stunning colour and grain configuration. This is a harlequin (well matched) set and therefore there is some variation in the colour and size of the chairs. The chairs sit firm on the ground and do not wobble. They are well constructed, solid in joint and ready to use.
