(SOLD) Faux Bamboo Folding Campaign Chair, Circa Mid 20th C
A magnificent vintage folding campaign chair. This is not an antique chair, it is vintage, likely made circa 1960-1990. Have found the identical chair and construction and material being noted as 1870 by other online sellers but that is incorrect. The mahogany frame has been expertly carved to mimic bamboo chutes, as Chinoiserie was all the rage in England at the time. These chairs would have originally been used in many of the countless British military campaigns that were occurring across the globe by officers in their tents. Their portable nature lends them to this on-the-go lifestyle. The seats and backs are made of leather with the arms being loose straps of leather fashioned to the seatback and fronts with brass hardware. Turned finials cap the chairs’ supports, embellished with brass. Each chair has a seat height of 18-½”.
