Product Description

A stunning and rare draughtsman chair…

Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1940s, this is an original and rare chair by Glenister of High Wycombe, England. Made in solid oak and with a cast iron stem, the chair was designed with posture in mind, and complemented with an adjustable back rest. This is the one of the most sought after styles of chair, so it’s great to see an example in its original condition

The chair is beautiful on the eye, for display in ones home or of course its perfectly functional in an office setting today (for example). The chair as pictured is static, however one can simply twist the chair with a simple push to allow the chair to move (or wind up or down), for height preference. The chair is in really nice shape, and we love the imperfections to the seat cover that shows off this pieces’ authenticity…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Structurally the chair is strong and sturdy, yet it does shows signs of age in places. That said, the weathered areas here and there adds to he charm of this piece, and it wouldn’t look out of place in any setting. It’s tatty and dirty in places, yet we feel this simply adds to its character. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
