Vintage Industrial Pressed Metal Sebel Chair - SOLD
In 1947 Tessie O’Shea, a Welsh entertainer and actress was at the height of her fame and the spokeswoman for metal chairs, the "Sebel Stak-A-Bye chairs". These pressed metal chairs with sweeping tubular legs were Sebel’s first chair. Having freshly disposed of their war time ration cards, the British were ready to come out of their bunkers and into their gardens.
To this day Sebel still operates from its original site at Bankstown, NSW, Australia. Established in 1947 by Harry Sebel who emigrated to Australia from post WWII Britain, he started Sebel with his father David, a metalworker Russian emigree. The production of these chairs ceased in 1958, however with the recent revival of vintage mid-century furniture, they’ve made a comeback.
These chairs are great for extra seating inside as they stack nicely. The are perfect for the garden as well.
