The price quoted is for one chair.
The 203 represents one of the most elegant chairs produced by Ercol with its unique curves and low frame.
Highly prized and a vintage lover’s dream, capturing the key elements of the MCM look, this style of chair continues to be in high demand by aficionados, as demonstrated across social media. Mid Century furniture looks so at home in any property and the dark stain on this chair gives it a real edge. Don’t dismiss the dark, bold, colouring - this is a prime way to bring depth and warmth to any light, airy, contemporary living space.
Ercol are an iconic British furniture company started by Lucian Ercolani, an Italian immigrant and Cabinet Maker in the 1930’s. They are known for their elegant sleek designs and use of quality conditioned timbers such as Beech, Ash and Elm. Some of their designs from their heyday in the 1960’s and 70’s are today highly sought after and collectable. The company have produced many of the iconic pieces of retro mid Century furniture and are still family-operated today.
The chair has a Beech wood frame with 8 upward spindles, curved arms and diagonal supports. This chair has rubber webbing slots rather than tension springs which indicates it was produced after 1956. This is in good order but does show some sagging. The iconic 203 chairs were released in the early 1950’s and became a centrepiece of the companies successful ‘Windsor’ Range. The chair cushions, I think, are upholstered in the purchaser’s original choice - these are in good order, still plump with no rips or tears, just general wear. We have steam cleaned to freshen.
The chair frames are in very good vintage condition and are in Ercol’s dark stain colouring ( Old Colonial - I think! ) although some wear and scuffing is obvious, it is mainly to the arms. Each chair is structurally sound with no loose joints or wobbles. The Ercol badge is still present on the back of each chair.
Having a pair is becoming more of a rarity, but we are selling these separately as not everyone has room for two - happy to negotiate on price if it’s a pair you are after. We also have the matching footstool, all acquired from the same household from new!
