A delightful and really quite comfortable Windsor scroll back and with maker's 'signature' too. We've gone through Cotton's book on regional chairs but there isn't one like this on any of its 500 or so pages so consider it an unusual design.
Some other dealers, one in particular that comes to mind, would treat you to a load of blather about it 'surviving from the zenith of the mid victorian period' - refer to it as 'she' and then list its defects as the icing on the cake of decrepitude before hitting you with a price that would leave any sane connoisseur of the antique reeling in disbelief.
We on the other hand won't insult you. It is old - it shows signs of old repairs, knocks, scrapes and abrasions - it is however eminently useable (but not if you are too broad in the beam) - it is £195
