This British army Tank seat is incredibly rare. In fact I have never come across one before. As with anything made by the army it is multifunctional and has levers and handles to transform this seat into a variety positions and it even folds up into a compact fold away seat.
This would originally have been made to fold away so that it could create maximum space inside the cramped conditions of an army tank. To say this thing is heavy is an understatement. I can barely lift it. It just underlines the superior quality and workmanship that the army put into building such items. They were built to last.
The exact history of this seat is probably easy to find out by researching the serial numbers. What I do know is that it is very old, I guess it dates back before the 1970s.
Possible uses and ideas:
You could just bolt this to any wall using the pre-drilled holes and use it a chair in a waiting room, office chair or place it any industrial environment. I feel this could make a great tattoo or barbers chair. A one off incredible talking piece and star item.
Dimensions in CM:
30 cm high to the seat x 57 cm high to the arm rest x 42 cm wide seat x 86 cm to top of the head rest
