Tailor’s advertising chair (price includes UK delivery)



This Chas. Baker & Co. tailor’s advertising chair dates from the mid to late 19th century, possibly early 20th.

It is made in mahogany with a gentleman’s trouser press concealed in the back.

Following the opening of their first store in 1864, they expanded across London until the company were forced to close due to the outbreak of WWII in 1939. There was a boom in the British textile industry in the mid-late 19th century and the clothing trade was a very competitive business. Chas. Baker & Co were innovative in the world of advertising with decorative maps of London and printed leaflets.

This great piece of history would look fab in a gentleman’s tailors or equally good in a design studio.

Price includes UK mainland delivery.
