These chairs were made as guest seating for the Royal Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. They are outstanding examples as they are original throughout, including the seat location tags on the top rail. The chairs are stamped on the inside rails CORONATION and are in excellent condition. After the coronation, and in order to try and recover some of the costs of the event, by an act of Parliament those who had attended the coronation were allowed to purchase the chair or stool they had sat on during the ceremony. In 1953 the chairs were sold for 7 pounds 10 shillings each. It is known who sat in these chairs during the coronation and this information will be supplied to the buyer.
