Object History


Object Literature

It is likely that this chair was made bespoke for a discerning client and it probably unique in that respect.

A real stand out, both in colour and execution and also for its unusual quirks.

Object Condition

In good overall condition, the chairs upholstery is fairly recent so is sound and in good overall order and the springs are all sound with the unusual castors operating as they should and the backs spring mechanism also working.
