It was a lovely day on Saturday, so I decided to tackle that old chair I found. I'd previously thought it was made from Oak, but now I think it's Chestnut.
I stripped off all the old seating (and burnt it), glued a couple of bits that needed gluing, then found this number.
173324 is stamped onto the back.... any ideas?
Lady M said it must have been made in a factory, but I'm certain it's an amateur job. I do know that prisoners made chairs up until quite recently, so I'm wondering if that could be the answer.
I would liked to have imagined it was made on the 17th of March 1924.... but the 33 (and not 03) rules that out.
