Seller: speedyspikea79 (615) 100%, Location: Eastleigh, Southampton, Hampshire, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 152336230849 This is a wonderful Old spindle chair and the cheese or packman marks date it to the war time 1940's utility chair. I don't know exactly what wood it is, (pine elm teak) made of but it shouts quality. It has a lovely patina through years of waxing and polishing and is very sturdy. Perfect for a child. It has the number 14 F184 two packman symbols and 199 stamped on the back of the seat. Some history of the markings on the back of this furniture. By 1941 it had become apparent that the combination of a severe lack of timber suitable for furniture making (in which Britain was not self-sufficient) and the increased demand for new furniture due to the losses of housing caused by bombing and to the continuing establishment of new households after marriage, had created a severe furniture shortage. The Utility Furniture Advisory Committee The Utility Furniture Advisory Committee was set up in 1942, drawing on considerable expertise, principally Gordon Russell and Ernest Clench, also Herman Lebus and John Gloag, in order to assure that the scarce available resources were used in a sensible way. New furniture was rationed and was restricted to newly-weds and people who had been bombed out, under the "Domestic Furniture (Control of Manufacture and Supply (No 2)) Order 1942" operative from 1 November 1942. The CC41 mark. The same logo was used for Utility Furniture as had been developed for the Utility clothing scheme: two capital letters C's and the figure 41, for "Civilian Clothing 1941" (which soon became known as "The Cheeses"). This will look great in a cottage corner or bedroom. Floor to seat 35 cm Overall height 64 cm. Seat width 30 cm. There is some very old wood worn that I have showed in the photos but it's dead. I have also treated since I have owned it to be sure. Beautifully made and designed. Material: Beech
