Vintage Industrial 1940S Lorry Bus Seat/Chair by Chapman of London
A rare little beast indeed and what a cracking look... Chapmans are still going strong and produced strong seats for tanks, public transport and proper lorries!
We just love the look and condition on this one and you rarely come across one out of its usual surroundings. It’s very original with a lovely build-up of wear on the metal shell frame and the original thick black grained Rexine covering. The seat is stamped on the base and also with a little metal label to the seat.
We have lightly cleaned the seat and we are happy to announce that the practical looking wind up handle to adjust the height is working fine as is the lever on the steel painted base to ensure you can swivel the chair. The whole piece is firm with no repairs, just genuine wear. You may wish to place it on a further base or even screw into your lorry, bus or tank.
Without doubt a fab piece of British industrial history which would work well in a home or commercial setting.
