Prince of Wales Investiture Chairs
Designed by Lord Snowdon and used by royals and other notable attendees of The Prince Wales’s 1969 investiture ceremony at Caernarfon Castle, the investiture chair was manufactured by Remploy and was made of a vermillion stained plywood and covered in Welsh wool.
Further to this blog entry and with the help of Digger and Mojo I have now finally sourced some of the original Welsh wool for these chairs. It's slightly less orange than the first batch but is exactly right in provenance in that it was woven by the same mill that did the original - the very same man in fact.
I've done twelve of these in the last two weeks and they look superb in the new cloth.
So if you have one or more and you live somewhere near me, bring them in. I you live nearer to Wiltshire then give Digger and Mojo a call and they'll do it for you. If you need fabric without upholstery this can be arranged through either of us.
What are you waiting for?
