FleaBay LNWR chair

Post by Gary Wells » Mon Jul 27, 2015 2:12 pm

Did furniture suppliers 'brand' items sold to the LNWR, as seen here:

See photo of seat base:

or were they usually embossed?

Amongst my documents I have an order that states: 'all items of metal are to be stamped with the company initials' was this true for wooden supplies?

Yes Gary. All the chairs I have seen were branded "LNWR" underneath the side rail. That this one is of unusually simple design and the branding includes "&" may or may not suggest that it is genuine?

Thanks Mike. My suspicion was it didn't feel right, but I would not question the sellers integrity.

I see its been relisted today. Interesting, it does seem to come from Crewe but then it's dated 1900-1950!

The "Ready for use" term is quaint!

An auctioneer by the name of Bamfords was selling a chair which is also not of the normal design, although this one does seem to have "LNWR" without the "&".

Now that one I might be tempted to bid on Mike; interestingly it says 'stamped' for the mark, but no image.

A late 19th century elm smoker's bow chair, stamped with LNWR to seat, possibly from Monsal Dale Station.

Hmmm. Monsal Dale was not an LNWR staion. It may or may not be genuine, but it is not hard to stamp letters onto wood.
