Pair of Vintage Ercol Children’s Blue Dot Stacking Chairs
Originally designed for use as a child’s school chair, Ercol’s stacking chair range came in different sizes, denoted by a coloured dot at the back – yellow, red, blue and green, the largest size. This pair are the blue dot design (the dots are still visible at the back of the chairs) and they are super sweet. They are solid and sturdy as it ever was, and is in super condition, given their years – the dot stacking chair range dates from 1963. They can of course be used as a children’s chairs still but they are also quite simply, fine-looking, eye-catching objects, either stacked or set apart. They can be put to good use as side tables by favourite seats, matching stands for the bedside or next to the bath in a country cottage for, or a space to display a dramatic houseplant perhaps. They are beautiful vintage things with considerable charm.
This is a pair of original, used chairs that are ‘sold as seen’. They are in very good, vintage condition. We have lightly cleaned and polished the chairs with natural wax but nothing too invasive to ensure the original finish and aged patina is preserved. They do, as you would expect, show signs of wear and tear. The chairs are both sturdy and solid with no signs of repair. There is no second back bar, more commonly seen on these dot chairs, although not always. There are small, discreet screw holes on both chairs on the back spindles, indicating this bar has been removed at some point. We’re not sure why and this has been reflected in our price. Both carry Ercol’s blue dot on the back.
