Georgian Thames Valley Yew and Elm Windsor Chair.

Exceptional and very handsome Georgian, circa 1760, Thames Valley region yew and elm Windsor armchair attributed to John Pitt and Richard Hewitt.

It is a generously proportioned and very comfortable chair. Its seat is carved from one piece of elm and has a one-piece steam bent horseshoe arm rest.

It is in overall very good condition, it has been well restored at some point, has a few old hairline cracks, small areas of historic woodworm and very small traces of old paint and it has had replacement stretchers in its history.

Height 105cm x Width 67cm x Depth 60cm. Seat height 43cm

This chair is of the very finest quality, an incredibly similar chair was featured on the front cover of The English Regional Chair by Bernard Cotton.

Also see Regional Furniture, The Journal of the Regional furniture Society, Vol. X1X, 2005, pp.20-32 for a similar example.

A very similar chair sold in Bonhams in January 2019 for over £8000.

Molly and Maud's specialise in beautiful, interesting and unusual decorative antiques and art. The business is run by mother and daughter team Karen and Chloe. Karen’s passion for interior design and the arts inspired Chloe from a young age. They travel extensively, acquiring their stock which is displayed in their showroom, online and at fairs around the UK. They regularly ship items worldwide.

In 2013 whilst hunting for premises for their expanding stock, they realised that the orchard behind Karen’s house was a perfect starting point for them, but it already had two resident pet lambs named ‘Molly and Maud’. A new home was quickly found for them in a neighbouring field, a wooden building was then purchased and so began ‘Molly and Maud’s Place’. In 2016 they expanded further by building a new showroom on the premises.

The business is based in the village of Kirk Hammerton in North Yorkshire, midway between York and Harrogate just four miles from the A1 (M).

Visitors to the showroom are very welcome,  by appointment.
