Patterned Deco Theatre Seats

Set 4 of Deco theatre seats with aisle ends, recovered from the STAR Cinema on Ecclesall Road, Sheffield around 30 years ago, just before it was demolished.  The theatre opened in 1915, but the aisle ends have a very Art Deco style to them. It had been used as a bingo hall since the late 50s early 60s, although the seats were in the upper section which had remained unused during those years.  The metal frames are painted in a gold colour and there are a few very minor areas where the paint has been chipped or scraped off, as you would expect for seats of this age. The fabric has been given a good hoovering and left in original condition, showing signs of wear appropriate to age. The best original fabric we have seen, gorgeous pattern and colours which capture the time perfectly.

Measures: 210cm wide x 80cm high x 45cm deep
