Vintage Bamboo Hanging Egg Shaped Chair


An impressive and rare large mid 20th century hanging bamboo egg-shaped chair. A fabulous purchase if you're looking for that special statement chair and this is certainly the best example we’ve seen!

This beautiful hanging rattan chair is the perfect piece to add a little pizazz to your home. Style your chair with sheepskins and cushions for a cosy place to sit and relax. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use and easily moved, but would need protection from the British winter weather !

This chair has an arched cane-work canopy and has the original frame, hook and chain, all complete and in working order. Horizontal bamboo cross bars create a spine to the chair adding style and strength, these are bound with attractive crisscross bindings. An angled sloped back seat gives comfort and when sat in feels snug.

All of this chair is original and comes complete with the black metal hanging frame. This could also hang from a ceiling or beam. The black metal comes in two parts and bolts easily together, no tools required!

Offered in good structurally sound condition but with age related marks, there are no breaks in the bamboo and the crisscross strapping is all intact. The only missing strapping is on the left hand front upright bar of the chair, this is shown in the photos.

We have photographed the chair with a sheepskin throw and cushion - these can be sold with the chair as a separate purchase, just message us.

Our Delivery Policy
Safely delivering items you purchase in a timely fashion is both our priority and also one of the most challenging aspects of our business.
In most circumstances, we offer free hand delivery, contact-free, to most mainland UK addresses, either by ourselves or via our dedicated, trusted, couriers. This ensures that your purchases arrive in exactly the condition they were in when you purchased them, as accurately described on our site. You should expect delivery to be within 1 to 3 weeks of you placing the order. We will contact you directly with a firm delivery date and advise you in advance of a two hour delivery window. Free delivery does not apply to areas of mainland UK not covered by our trusted couriers, or for low value items - if this applies to your purchase, we will simply charge you what we are charged for delivery, less any Etsy fees, and notify you of this as soon a practicable after the sale goes through, giving you the option of a full refund.
We are able to package and export items beyond mainland UK and have done so as far afield as Hong Kong and New Zealand. We regularly export to Northern Ireland and Eire and the majority of Europe. Please contact us directly for a tailored quotation.
When ordering, please supply us with your mobile phone number, so we may liaise directly with you regarding delivery. Please advise if there are any delivery restrictions that will apply (such as access, parking restrictions etc.).
Please note that if we are unable to deliver on a pre-arranged day, you will be charged a flat fee of £50 for re-delivery.
