Rustic Windsor Armchair

This little armchair, with its continuous back rail in the Windsor style, is a charming example of rustic furniture. Several coats of overpaint conceal the original black finish. This piece was discovered in 1971, just east of London, Ontario; it is remarkable that a chair such as this has survived for so long in good condition.
