Sikes Bank of England Chairs  Solid Wood This Ad is for 1 Chair ———————————————————————————————————————— These Chairs have an elegant armrest with curving rails and flat spindles fitting the contour of the back. An early printed reference to the chair occurs in an 1890 New York Times article describing the furnishings of a Pullman parlor car.

The Bank of England chair remains one of the best seats for preceptors and seminars tough but comfortably contoured.
