This child’s chair has been handed down through our family for many generations. I have a photo taken in about 1902/3 of my great great grandmother surrounded by her grandchildren. One of the children is my grandfather, aged about 5 or 6, wearing a sailor suit. On the right of the photo his little girl cousin is sitting in this chair.
We think the chair began life as a child’s high chair, as there are holes through the arms for a security bar. The cover on the seat pad is faded and worn but I don’t want to replace it as that is part of its history. What I am going to do is make a rugged seat pad to fit it – so watch this space, folks!
