Amish Contemporary Wheat Sheaf Bow Back Windsor Side Chair - SKU#3420
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 Colonial Wheat Sheaf Bow-Back Windsor chair was so named due to the elegant depiction of a wheat sheaf set into it's bowed back support.
