A set of fourteen beech chairs made for the War Department in 1953/53 by esteemed chair maker, Henry Goodearl & Sons of High Wycombe.
The chairs are stamped with a crown and 'WD' as they were made for the War Department. They are also stamped with the makers name and year of production. The Goodearl family have been chair makers in England since the 1870s and were known for the quality of their craftsmanship which used traditional handmade methods when other makers had long since moved to machine manufacturing.
These chairs are a fabulous ergonomic design, comfortable, sturdy well built and getting rarer to find. Very popular as kitchen chairs/dining chairs and bedroom chairs.
