Large Edwardian armchair - the Blitz Survivor
A large Edwardian armchair reupholstered in Melin Tregwynt Elements Aqua 100% wool fabric.
This huge armchair has an amazing story attached - the owner's grandfather bought it in London at the turn of the century and had it in his Ilford home. Just before WW2 they moved out to the country and rented their home fully furnished. During the Blitz the house suffered a direct hit, killing all the occupants and destroying pretty much everything else EXCEPT THIS CHAIR.
Like St.Paul's Cathedral, this chair has had a few repairs and modifications over the years but remains as a stoic reminder of the quality of British manufacture. To those who try to defeat us we defiantly turn our backs on your attempts...
This was a commission
