What beautiful gams?

My Dad used to speak of  a woman's legs as 'gams'.  Now I tried to find that in the dictionary but the closest I came was gammer, which is a rustic word for an old woman and gammon whose first meaning is a bottom piece of flitch of bacon including hind leg (gambe leg). 

I am ready to send my 2 chairs and foot stool to the upholsterer. These are indeed rustic ladies.  One chair has painted woodwork.  I am using my new chalk paint and waxes to pretty up the woodwork.  I'm just trying a couple of colours and experimenting with the light and dark wax.

How is that for a beautiful gam?
