A timeless campaign chair with a touch of the ‘pampas’. Chair features High quality American hand stitched oiled bridle leather in Khaki color. Field chair has solid brass buckles and hand-turned pine wood.. An appealing style for the discerning buyer.
Gently worn, antiqued leather. Honey finished solid wood assembly frame. Designed to function on uneven footing, their flexibility surprises. Originally designed by London Army & Navy purveyors for Imperial Army officers on the move. Legs and frame rolled up inside the canvas seat, or if luxury was called for, leather.
Then in the 1920’s taken by European settlers of the Argentina pampas, it became the gaucho’s stock for trade. Antique ones now populate living rooms of haciendas in Argentina and Uruguay. Guess being on a horse all day made gauchos appreciate the gentle movement of this truly magical chair with a macho provenance.
