A fantastic mahogany railway station chair, likely GWR. The seat is finely covered in lovely 1950’s retro railway carriage moquette upholstery.
Superb quality, incredibly heavy and solid, the chair features some very attractive aged wear to the dark stained surfaces and the original vintage cabin upholstery is unsurprisingly in excellent condition, being intended for quite intensive abuse but having in reality seen only relatively light use.
Whilst there is no stamp visible, and we haven’t wanted to remove the under seat covering to check further, this chair was found amongst a collection of other identical chairs all stamped GWR.
English, early 20th century.
