Only one chair left - it does not have the AM logo / mark (having been painted over. Vintage red Air Ministry folding chair dating from the WWII / just after the war.
We believe the chairs would have been used as hall / meeting  / briefing chairs by Air Ministry personnel at one of their premises / airfields. 

We have a selection of Air Ministry furniture including this run of 23 old painted chairs.
 
Perfect for a vintage or retro-inspired dining room, retro kitchen or garden.
 
These chairs will look good in any period home or setting.
 
The chairs are priced for a single unit.
 
Air Ministry chair size: W46cm x D50 x H80
 
Due their size / weight we are unable to accept orders for chairs outside the UK.
 
The chairs were not originally red. The chairs we send you may not have the Air Ministry 'AM' stamp / stencil mark. There is some colour variation to these chairs. Our old and vintage chairs are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition. For more information see our ethical policy for wooden furniture and wooden accessories.

The Air Ministry was created in January 1918 to oversee the birth in April 1918 of the Royal Air Force from the amalgamation of the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service. The organisation was broadly similar to that of the Admiralty and the War Office, with a Secretary of State chairing the Air Council and the senior RAF member holding the post of Chief of the Air Staff. In 1919 the Air Ministry moved to Adastral House, then in Kingsway. In 1952 the central part of the Air Ministry moved to the new building in Whitehall Gardens that was later to become the Main Building of the Ministry of Defence.
 
The supply of military aircraft, which had been the responsibility of the Air Ministry, was transferred in 1940 to a new Ministry of Aircraft Production, which in 1946 was amalgamated with the Ministry of Supply. In further reorganisations the task was switched to the Ministry of Aviation in 1959, to the Ministry of Technology in 1967 and finally to the Ministry of Aviation Supply in 1970. In 1971 the Government called on Mr Derek Rayner to advise on its relations with the aviation industry. One of his principal recommendations was the transfer to the MOD of the military aviation task, to be undertaken by a separate organisation within the MOD, which would also assume the responsibility for all other military procurement.
