Vintage Retro 60's Ercol Tub Grandmother Armchair Model 305 Blonde Light FinishJan 10th, 2022 at 18:27 For Sale London 104 views
For sale very rare Ercol Windsor Grandmother's Tub armchair (model 305) designed by Lucian Ercolani as a celebration of ‘Windsor’ chair maker in High Wycombe during the late 60's.
Ercol furniture is synonymous with good design, quality materials and craftsmanship and is built for longevity. It is now back in fashion (keenly collected and highly regarded). This is a real eye catching piece of vintage, retro furniture which no longer in production.
This piece is of the usual high quality one expects from this manufacturer. The saddle seat is of solid English elm and the steam bent frame and armrests are of beech. The chair is finished in an Ercol ‘Light / Blonde Finish’ and a satin protective lacquer. This piece still retains original label which states it was originally manufactured in 1978.
Size of the chair (approximately):
Height: 32.5” (82.5cm)
Width: 27.5” (70cm)
Depth: 26” (66cm)
Seat Height: 11” (28.5cm)
Seat Height with a cushion: 16” (40cm)
The armchair is in very good vintage condition with some light marks commensurate with age and use and it is free of any damage. The chair is sturdy with no loose joints or spindles and no separation to the elm seat. The removable covers are also in a very good condition. The seat foam insert might need to be replaced shortly but the back foam is brand new. The armchair has been cleaned and waxed, the cushion covers have been dried cleaned.
Please see pictures for a better idea of the condition. I have tried to show colours as accurately as possible but please remember colours do appear differently on some monitors.
Item is located in E7 9JX. I can deliver it in person to any London address for an extra £45. Delivery to London vicinity area is also possible at a small cost.
