Originating at the beginning of the eighteenth century, Windsor chairs have been produced as disposable garden and verandah chairs and as finely carved royal furniture and, whether made by hand or machine, their basic, simple country lines have made them very collectable. To many people, the wide range of Windsor chairs is completely unknown, linking the name as they do with only the most popular type, the wheelback Windsor chair. This book attempts to introduce these to the reader and to point out some of the basic characteristics which help in the naming and dating of Windsor chairs.
