Nantucket Windsor

This is a great chair to place at your dining room table ends.

This armchair is a beautiful and comfortable piece.

History:

The use of the V-cut crest scroll extends to chairs produced on the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard and the adjacent mainland around New Bedford (fig. 20). Chairmakers of the region produced a distinctive Windsor with a tall raking back, today frequently called a “Nantucket” chair, as a chair for reclining. The handgrips, a high back, and a modeled seat supported and eased the sitter’s body, and a coverlet or other textile draped over the inside of the chair provided a barrier against drafts, particularly when the chair was drawn up to the hearth.
