These stools were made especially for H. M. The Queen's coronation in 1953 at Westminster Abbey, and under the influence of Queen Mary (a keen antiques collector), were based on a 16th century "Farthingale" design. Various High Wycombe furniture manufacturers were commissioned to make the stools and chairs for the coronation. Guests were then allowed to buy their stools and chairs after the ceremony.

Castle Brothers of High Wycombe was founded in 1908, and during the Second World War made wooden parts for the Mosquito bomber. They were taken over by E. Gomme in 1958.

This stool is in immaculate condition and comes with the original protective cloth cover. 

 

Condition

Immaculate. Comes with the original protective cloth cover. The Royal Blue colour fresh and intact. One of the best Coronation stools I've seen for a long time.

Various Buckinghamshire furniture manufacturers were commissioned to make the stools and chairs for the coronation. Guests were then allowed to buy their stools and chairs after the ceremony.
