OK, so lets try and get some conversation going .... !!

Went to Haworth at the weekend .. its local, 15 mins by car and something to do ... anyway saw this chair and something about it looked right, so asked the stall holder what it was .... he said it was an original Stakmore, and had come from Burtonwood base, or what used to be the base anyway.

It is a Stakmore according to the logo on the bottom of the seat, made in UK and I got it for 're-enactors rates', £18 (full asking price was £20) thinking it would ideal to use on display, did some research on it and managed to find similar types only with a rounded seat, those being classed as Edwardian period ones, haven't been able to find any with a square seat, and also there seems to be a slight difference in the markings on the bottom compared to some I have seen in a search, there is no patent number for one thing and also the 'in' is missing from made in England ... so thought it worth a post to see what folks think ... pics attached ..

Ahhh .. yes I know ... but thought I could use it with my 'field office' which is rear echelon anyway ... thought it would compliment the standard OD metal folding one I have .. ??

Do you think its right period then .. acceptable or is it post war use ..??

For more information, you could try contacting:-

The chair looks an older design than a 1930s Beech slatted folding chair, nothing wrong with using it for WW2. This is a modern one:-
