Gothic Windsor armchair (one of a pair)

British, Thames Valley

Not on view

Quintessentially English country furniture, this pair of Windsor armchairs (see also 2016.234) is a variant of the more traditional bow-back design. With its pointed arch-shaped back and openwork splats displaying Gothic tracery, these chairs beautifully reflect the Gothic taste which became fashionable in England in the middle of the 18th century.
