Bentwood Arm chair. 

In the afternoon sun I made my way to a service station on the M1 where I met Helena to exchange a chair that I had purchased from her and her husband.  Much to my delight the chair is as good as it pictures.  This style of chair has been particularaly hard to find.  Described by the RAF pattern book as 21B/953 Chair Arm Bentwood I have only seen one example at Bletchley park.  This chair is as original as they come. Retaining most of the original dark staining and the green vynide covering.  With lovely metal brackets supporting the legs.  The underside of the chair has stores information linking the chair to RAF Marston Moor.  A really lovely chair that looks simply stunning.
