Unique 19th Century Stamp Marked Broad Arm Antique Yorkshire Windsor Chair

Unique 19th Century Stamp Marked Broad Arm Antique Yorkshire Windsor Chair

A unique and wonderfully charismatic large ash and elm antique Windsor chair in beautiful condition. Showing wonderful colour and signs of age, the broad-armed and bow-backed design puts it as Yorkshire-made circa 1840-70. Beautifully designed, expertly made, extremely sturdy and comfortable, it has lovely toning and patination and is an excellent example of a Victorian English Windsor chair, which will add authentic antique rustic charm to any interior.


Impressively sized, it was expertly made from beautiful ash and elm woods using traditional English 19th century craftsmanship skills. It features a gorgeous large, sculpted solid single-piece elm seat plate with beautiful grain, which has wonderfully warped with age and is marked with a rare stamp of ‘cross within a circle’ to the back, making this an unmistakable one-of-a-kind chair.


It features the characteristic Yorkshire sturdy broad horseshoe-shaped arms with lovely end curls for hand rests and sturdy double-layered arm supports below lovely turned spindles. The wrap-around bent and shaped bow back flattens out from being rounded at the arms and has wonderfully warped its shape with age.


The shapely back-splat has pierced 'Christmas Tree' designs, the strong and beautifully ornate turned legs match the super arm supports and there’s a rare chunky double H-stretcher between the legs for extra support.


All in all this is an outstanding and authentic example of 19th Century craftsmanship; wonderfully charismatic and a dream to sit in and relax.



This is in excellent antique condition and extremely sturdy and comfortable. Structurally sound and built to last, the seat and back have wonderfully warped with age and the only very minor historic flaw is an old crack (which likely happened in the bending process and hardened to solid soon after) to the back of the upper layer of the double arm support. Overall this is a beautiful authentic example of a classic traditional design and craftsmanship in wonderful condition and if well looked after should last another 150+ years – please see the photos.
