Amish Classic Colonial Fan Back Windsor Arm Rocking Chair - SKU#3810
Windsor Chairs represent a high point in the landscape of furniture design & construction. The original English Windsor Chair has traveled extensively throughout the centuries, first coming to America in about 1726. Since then, several stylistic and structural adaptations have evolved including Arrow-Back, Bow-Back, Comb-Back, Fan-Back, Paddle-Back, Sack-Back, Wheat-Back, and many other Windsor Chair varieties. The original Fan-Back Windsor chair was so named due to it's obviously fan-shaped back support.
This Amish Classic Fan-Back (Comb-Back) Windsor Rocking Chair is modeled on the Classic Fan-Back (Comb Back) Windsor Arm Chair - a reproduction antique piece, faithfully following a true masterpiece of early furniture design, circa 1797. That highly accoladed original chair was produced by Beriah Green in New London County, Connecticut. By using 100% premium American hardwood components combined with modern glues and a range of quality finishes (see thumbnails above) it actually surpasses the beauty and durability of the original fan-back chair.
Characterized by deeply carved turnings, a comfortably dished seat, and legs that are deeply socketed into the seat for maximum stability and durability. Comfortable back and arm support is ensured by the use of 9 ergonomically arched back spindles and 3 arm spindles on each side.
