A rare and unique Lincolnshire 'Caistor' Windsor chair in good and original condition. Re Bernard Cotton 'The English Regional Chair', these chairs were made in the Lincolnshire town of Caistor between 1850-1890 and most probably in the workshop of John Shadford. His notebooks survive and the drawings match these chairs down to the unusual turnings to the individual components used. The chair has some nice wear through the red lead ground to the Ash wood of the arms and back. A very interesting chair. 47" high x 23" wide x 24" deep 18" seat height

Price £525.00    €590.31    $690.64

Early 19th century Windsor Chair
Regency mahogany armchair - if you're keen on the lived in and (genuinely) distressed look this could be for you but if, on the other hand, your furnishings have to be immaculate - then definitely not. That said it is, despite several ancient repairs, perfectly useable just as it is and will continue to give years of sterling service. Would look super in a period gentleman's library or similar

Matching set of four country Hepplewhite chairs, circa 1780, in fruitwood with rush seats. These elegant chairs will, before long, be 250 years old yet remain sturdy and totally usable on every day basis with good tight joints and no wobblyness. Traces of old and long dead worm in one section of one chair and rush is old and somewhat careworn but has lots of life left in it.

We couldn't resist this much travelled chair with its connection to the uncrowned king of magic and wizardry during the 19th century John Henry Anderson - or the Great Wizard of the North! Walnut framed arm chair of, we would say, either a French or American maker carrying an engraved plaque to the rear bearing the legend ' Presented to Mrs John Smith by John Henry Anderson (The great Wizard of the North) as a token of his gratitude for the many acts of kindness done to him by her beloved Husband. Boston. Massachusetts. United States of America. 29th September 1852'. The Wizard was indeed touring the United States at this time and it is intriguing to ponder upon what services Mr Smith could have performed that resulted in such a gift - hopefully not an unsuccessful rendition of anderson's gun trick! Whilst the upholstery is not the original it has some age and is very usable, with good springing, webbing and padding, despite showing very slight signs of having been caressed by a cat's claws at the back. The Boston date of 1852 There is much to be found about the Great Wizard of the North, as he was apparently dubbed by Walter Scott, on the 'web' but this is how Britannica sums him up - John Henry Anderson, (born July 14, 1814, Craigmyle, Aberdeen, Scot.—died Feb. 5, 1874, Darlington, Durham, Eng.), Scottish conjurer and actor, the first magician to demonstrate and exploit the value of advertising. Described on playbills as “Professor Anderson, the Wizard of the North,” he first performed in 1831. Seasons at Edinburgh (1837) and Glasgow (1838–39) followed. In London (1840) he made use of the most elaborate collection of magical apparatus ever seen there. During a U.S. tour (1851–53) Anderson first did his famous “gun trick,” by which he appeared to catch a bullet fired by someone in the audience. On his return to Great Britain he performed before Queen Victoria and then took the title role in the melodrama Rob Roy at the Lyceum and Covent Garden theatres (1855–56). The three-day “Grand Carnival” with which the Covent Garden seasons were concluded ended in disaster in 1857 when Anderson tried to dispel drunken revelers by lowering the gaslights. The ceiling caught fire, and the theatre was burned down. This only added to his fame, and he continued to tour widely, his style of presentation gradually becoming less flamboyant.
