Vintage Mid Century Ernest Race B3 Chairs We Have 3

The Ernest Race B3 chair is so fab looking and just great to place nearly anywhere – bags of style and not of large proportions. Just love the angles!
These are in great original condition with no repairs or cracks to the painted metal frames. We have two grey ones and one deep olive black. Mark our upholsterer will be happy to reupholstery in a fabric of your choice for £70 plus fabric otherwise enjoy the fabric as is...

The BA3 was Ernest Race’s first design for Race Furniture. First exhibited at the ‘Britain Can Make It’ exhibition of 1946, the design was awarded a gold medal at the Milan Triennale in 1954. At a time of limited resources, the BA3 manufacturing process was revolutionary and used salvaged materials, including recast aluminium from redundant aircraft and upholstery from recycled RAF lightweight cotton duck fabric. Early examples of the BA3 are on display at MOMA in New York and the Victoria & Albert in London.

Please note you are buying one chair although three are available. The price is for one delivered not all three.

When purchasing please let us know which one you want and if you want reupholstery let us know as well.

A lovely classic British chair – we have one at home.

Billy Hunt is an independent partnership based in a wonderful Victorian Farming Buiding once used to stable Dray Horses for Bass Brewery and with the assistance of technology, enjoys serving customers nationally and internationally. 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 choose to source across the UK believing that the British Isles offers a splendid mix of fine quality, true eccentricity, creative design and exceptional craftsmanship which very few can equal.

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.
