Seller: domino.101 (586) 100%, Location: Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 192898282800 For your consideration is an old antique1920's era solid wood chair manufactured by B.L. Marble Chair Company, in it's original condition. From my research, the model of this chair is the "Bank of England" style denoted by #1417 located on the sticker at the bottom of the chair. The Bank of England chairs were one of the best in office chairs of the century. It was available in certain woods, however, by the looks of it, I believe this chair is made from quartersawn tiger oak wood (please view photos to make your own assessment). It is very heavy and has a beautiful curved slat back rest and a nice, large, very comfortable contoured seating area. B.L. Marble chairs were made to last and known for their comfort and elegance. Markings There is a nickel plated circular badge affixed to the back of the chair with the name of the manufacturer engraved on it, stating "The B.L.MARBLE CHAIR CO.,BEFORD,OHIO". Beneath the left arm is engraved "RL". Underneath is a square paper tag with the number 1417 and 3-F. (see photos) Background The B.L. Marble Chair Co. of Bedford, Ohio was formed in 1894 and turned out sturdy wooden chairs used in homes and offices, schools, courthouses and taverns around the United States. In 1965 it merged with Dictaphone Corp., and it stopped production in 1985.
