SOLD - These are classic Esavian school chairs designed by the British designer James Leonard and produced by Esavian.

They feature the distinctive and highly innovative die-cast aluminium legs with plywood seat and back rest.

Dimensions: (D)42cm x (w)48cm x (h)70cm. (Seat height: 38-40cm).

Please note, these chairs are approximate 1.5 inches lower than traditional chairs of this design so they're not ideally suited as dining chairs but would be superb as coffee table chairs..

Note: The price is per individual chair.

Mini Biography: The producer of these chairs -Esavian - used the name ESA or 'Education Supply Association'. The company was famous for producing low cost, good quality school furniture.

The ESA began trading in 1883 from a factory in Fishers Green Road (Hertfordshire, UK).  The company focused on modern manufacturing techniques and as a result Esavian stood for low-cost, good quality furniture, but they became best known for innovative folding classroom partitions( remember those from your school days?) and tables. The designer James W. Leonard is best known for the chair featured here. His work appeared in the Italian design magazine, Esempi, in 1955. In 2008, Guy Bagnall, referring to a compass leg table, wrote. It was featured in Domus in early 1948 and was manufactured in high-pressure die-cast aluminum, using an American machine, a highly-innovative production method. Over a million chairs were made by 1965.

Note: Our old, vintage, retro and antique wooden 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.
