Continuous Arm Yealmpton Windsor Chair

CUNNINGHAM WHITE'S
Known as ‘continuous arm’ Windsor chairs, chairs such as this one originate in the small Devon village of Yealmpton (only a few miles from our base). The unusual design then found its way to America in the early 19th century - inhabitants from Yealmpton, as with those from other coastal regions of the West Country, would’ve been some of the earliest to emigrate to the newly established settlements on the east coast of America and likely included some skilled chair makers!

Original English examples are rather rare and as such, very much sought after. This one has wonderful faux bamboo turned legs which support a waisted sycamore seat and faux bamboo turned spindles which, in turn, support a sculptural ‘continuous’ ash steam bent arm and backrest in one. The chair has a good amount of original milky cream paint with the ‘nodes’ still picked out in black. The chair has at some point had some sympathetic work done to the legs though even under close inspection, it’s very hard to see. A wonderful example of a rare chair.

At Cunningham White's we source decorative antiques and furniture. We are guided by great decorative value, recognising the emotion that can be gained from owning something that just looks and feels so good. We don't pin ourselves down to one particular style or period. We simply love good looking things.

Sam finds and Naomi fixes (although sometimes it's the other way round) and as a team we manage to always have a quality selection of stock in our collection.

We believe that antiques are the future. Timeless, quality pieces add so much character to any scheme and can make a house into a home. They are sustainable. They haven't been thrown away because they are made to last and they can be fixed. We do that bit for you (if it's needed). Antiques reflect our individuality and connect us to past generations. We will always try and find out the provenance of a piece and share that with our customers.

We gladly welcome visitors but please let us know when you plan to visit as we're often out. Our workshop is based in the grounds of a working rescue farm in the characterful, vibrant and independently minded community of Totnes in beautiful South Devon.
