Description
A super and very rare set of six Low Back Windsor Chairs in Yew Wood with Elm seats ,they have the crinoline leg stretchers, these chairs were made by William Wheatland whilst he was working from the town of East Retford a market town in Nottinghamshire, William was a lay preacher and moved to the newly constucted Hamlet of Rockley in c 1826 and built a workshop next to his house and A Methodist Chapel ,he carried on with his chair making but appeared to run out of money and left the area around 1830, this workshop became important in the area for Windsor Chair making being run firstly by George Nicholson then Fred Walker. Williams chairs are different to the later chairs in two ways one being the use of a plain swept underarm suport and the other he mortised the back spindles right through the seat,his chairs from his Retford period also had a scratch carved line around the edge of the seat it is thought he discontinued this after moving to Rockley. These six chairs have these characteristics and are in excellent condition.
