When the details of your doll vignette must be perfect.... I present to you this very fine English Windsor chair - exquisite in every way. Sold to me as an antique apprentice piece - it may be, but I think more likely vintage (20th century) and made by a master craftsman. He even signed his work with a label: "Karl Gibbees (or Gibbes) B.C." on the underside of the seat. The chair looks to be made entirely of oak or yew, and is perfectly proportioned for its scale. Don't miss the carved splat at the curving back (called a "sack back"), and the curved piece beneath called a "crinoline stretcher"- both attributes of a classic English Windsor chair from the 19th century. The seat is shaped and the legs well-turned adding more authenticity.
The chair measures 10 1/2" tall with a seat height of 4 1/2" (27 x 11.5 cm). It has a nice dark oak finish and is in nearly perfect condition with no breaks or repairs. Mlle. Fanny, who stands 14 1/2" (37 cm) tall thinks it is the perfect size for a doll like her. She is not included in the sale, however! Can't you imagine it being displayed with an early wooden or papier mache?
