Early American Bowback Windsor Side Dining Chair Handcarved Bamboo Antique

This is a bow-back Windsor side chair - it is a gorgeous piece of Early American furniture.   This piece came from the home of a serious 18th century antique collector, who had a beautiful collection of primitive furniture.  The chair features bamboo-turned legs, stretchers and spindles.  You can see plane marks on the bottom of the chair where it was hand carved.  All of the spindles and the legs of the chair were connected using the through-tenon method. 

The chair measures 35 11/16" in height.  The height from the floor to the top of the seat is 15 1/8".  The seat measures 15 1/2" wide by 15 1/2" deep.

This is in great condition overall with some small signs of age and use.  The chair does have general spots of wear and surface scratches that I believe should be expected on a piece that is more than 150 years old.  There is a chip next to one of the through-tenon joints at the top of the bow.  There is a spot next to this chip where a repair was done - this repair may very well have been made during production, but we do not know for certain.  We believe there is a possibility that this chair was painted, stripped and re-finished at some point, but we have no way of knowing for certain.  There are remnants of what could be old paint in the tiny cracks and crevices of the chair.  Please see pictures for more details.
