Vintage Bank of England Swivel Chair with Castors
The Bank of England (sometimes called “The Old Lady”) is the central bank of the United Kingdom, the model on which most modern, large central banks have been based.An armchair with a particularly dignified relationship to the human form is most associated with the history of the Bank of England, its elegantly curving rail and flat spindles fitting the contour of the back. By the turn of the century, Bank of England seats and arms were mounted on swivel bases with casters and were some of the most fashionable desk chairs in financial institutions and courthouse chambers.  The  “Bank of England” Swivel Chair is a formal yet functional piece that embodies pneumatic controls for the proper seat height adjustment,and a five-star base for superior stability. These particular chairs  aquired from the University of Texas and
may have served as library chairs.
