Long day? Time to take a pew.

Recent scraping around antiques fayres, auctions and jumble sales I came across these two chairs.  Following the same pattern as earlier Captains style chairs and stickback chairs these two chairs are both good examples and still sturdy.

The stickback chair came from a barn near Canbridge. As I was collecting it as if by fate, the Vulcan on one of its last flights flew over. A real treat.  Stamped with a lovely AM and crown and the famous makers name of E Gomme of high Wycombe . Stamped with the year 1940 so a real piece of history.

The captains chair with bulbous leg detail is also stamped with the AM and crown logo and a makers name along with 38 for the year of production.

Lovely chairs that would look even better with a quick polish.
