Master Carpenter's Chair
Created for the Master of the City Livery Company, the chair has three legs, the leg to the rear runs directly up the back to provide positive lumbar support. Vertical layers wrap around the back and support the Company shield in burnished white gold. Each side of the back, multiple layers sweep forward to form the arms.
Made of ‘bog’ oak, the wood has been conserved beneath the Fens since storms destroyed the high forest at the time the pyramids were being built (3000 BC.)
