This pattern of Windsor comb-back chair may point to a Nottinghamshire origin – which is where LASSCO sourced it. Confusingly they can be referred to as a Lancashire style – but were often made in Nottingham workshops. However, with triple-ring carvings to the legs, it suggests a Chilterns origin – so whilst at LASSCO Three Pigeons, it’s not far from home.

High Wycombe was the epicentre of chair-making in the mid 19th Century. In the 1860’s the workshops of the town and environs were producing five thousand per day. (See: Ivan G Sparkes “English Windsor Chairs”.
