Set of Six Ercol Model 400 Windsor Dining Chairs
A set of six Ercol Model 400 Windsor dining chairs, featuring four spindles held in place with Ercol’s signature curved-wood loop, they’re a combination of solid beech and elm blond woods. They were designed as much for dining comfort as they were good looks. This particular set can be precisely dated to 1979 and they come in great, used condition, ready for service in the modern home. They are beautiful crafted chairs designed for everyday use and this can be seen in the finish and patina. With neat proportions compared to chunky, modern dining chairs, these chairs work so well in smaller kitchens or family rooms where space is a premium. They will look as at home in a traditional country cottage as they would in a mid-century-inspired interior, such is their broad appeal and timeless design.
These are original vintage dining chairs that are ‘sold as seen’. They are in good – very good, used condition. They have been carefully cleaned, lightly sanded in places to remove some marks, and then waxed and polished with care taken to ensure the original finish is retained where possible. We would call this a partial restoration. There are signs of wear such as minor scratches, scuffs and blemishes to the wood. Two of the chairs have a repair on the top of the back bow. This is a common thing with these Ercol chairs as it’s where the curved tension is at its greatest and dry modern homes can lead to cracks here. We’ve shown this in our photos – it’s not particularly noticeable, the repairs have been done professionally and well, and it’s unlikely to happen again. All six chairs are superbly crafted, solid and stable with no wobbles. All six chairs carry the original marker’s sticker on the back of the seat and this shows their production date of 1979 and their model 400 ref.
