Look at the Cushion on that One


It’s a remarkably slow weekend here in our house, so while waiting for some servers to wake up and get busy on our new Lost Art Press web site, I pulled together another short booklet of images for you to download.

This download contains images of campaign-style chairs. They are mostly Roorkees and their variants, but I’ve included some other chair and stool images for you to study.

Here’s the link: CF_DESIGN_CHAIR

  3. Thanks. Neat stuff. How are the prices read in the catalog pages… “Price each 10/0” I’ve never seen prices written like that. I’m assuming its old British jargon.

    I really like the lock, any idea where it’s from? I assume India, Pakistan, or somewhere in Central Asia, but I’m curious if you know where specifically?

    I like seeing all the different forms for the chairs, but I simply love that lock!

    (The notation is “Shillings/Pence” before decimalization in Britain. Twelve pence to a shilling and 20 shillings to a pound sterling. So, 10/0 is a half a pound. Something like “10/6” would be said as “ten and six;” or ten shillings and six pence.)

  6. One could also imaging a similar booklet on all the forms of Cheryl Tiegs.

    Random question about all this campaign furniture: Did you run across this type of furnirure for American civil war officers?

      The United States has its own history with campaign/military furniture from the Revolution up to WWII. While it is a lot less fancy than the British stuff, some of it is quite interesting.

      It is one of the avenues I plan to go down in the coming years — unless someone else does it so I do not have to.
