A much sought after chair from the coronation of King George VI in 1937 at West Minster Abbey. Favoured guests at the coronation sat on these chairs and were invited to purchase them after the ceremony as souvenirs. Upholstered in a pale green coloured velvet, it has a concave backrest above a concave upholstered seat. Standing on square legs, the front have tapered carvings at top and bottom. The backrest is embroidered with the Royal monogram of George VI, “GR” under a crown.
To the underside of the seat rail of the chair is the makers stamp; W.Hands & Sons (one of two companies who supplied these chairs) along with date (1937) and another “GR” monogram.
Slightly wobbly to the back – but more suited as a decorative chair than one of everyday use. Wear and marks to the upholstery with one area of fabric missing the upper side of the seat rest (see photos) – webbing still ok. No worm of splits to the frame.
Depth: 14 3/4″
