Vintage Industrial 1940S Lorry Bus Seat 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.

Dimensions - Overall: Height 90cm x Width including Handle 64cm x Depth 54cm

Dimensions - Specifically the Seat: Height 50cm x Width 52-25cm (Front-Rear) x Depth 39cm

The collaboration of successful Interior Designer Martina Reitbauer and Ardent Gatherer Wayne Lawless brings to you an exciting and ever evolving selection of items for your home which do not have the constraints of a particular era, no onus on any particular style or a brand agenda to respect.

We take pleasure in gathering pieces from country houses, time-worn factories and auctions travelling extensively to seek out the appealing. You will notice when viewing our collection, we are not afraid to evolve furniture, recognise the need to modernise but are also content to leave “as found” aiming to create a piece or pieces that are beautiful, distinctive and a delight to live with.

Our wish is to show you some wonderful items that you would love to own and offer a service which is personal, professional, considerate and a pleasurable experience. You are able to view our stock in person by appointment, just contact us to arrange a convenient time here.
