Sorry, this chair has found and new owner and is sold.
1940's Utility Chair with the double cheese mark on the frame covered in Camira Nettle collection.
Small cushion with vintage buttons is included.
If you are interested in vintage design you will love this chair (and me for letting you have it!) Utility furniture was a government scheme during wartime austerity. New furniture was rationed - restricted to newly-weds and families who lost everything in bombing raids.
The double cheese symbol - CC41 stands for Citizen Clothing 1941. Continuing until 1952, the designs were largely in the tradition of the Arts and Crafts movement - severe in their simplicity with a lack of ornamentation that puts me in mind of the American Shaker movement!
Originally it was spray painted a two tone gold colour. The legs have been stripped and resprayed (iron back legs) and polished (wooden front legs). The basketweave of the body of the chair is intact (unusual for this type of chair) and the original gold colour has become muted with age but is still impressive..
There is a delivery charge - BUT if you live in London get in contact (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can arrange for you to collect without charge!
