A leading furniture highlight is HRH The Prince George, Duke of Kentís chair and stool from the coronation of his brother, HM King George VI in 1937. Covered in red silk, and woven with the Royal coat of arms, it is estimated to realise £15,000 to £30,000. It is a rare occurrence for these chairs to appear at auction. A chair of a simpler design that was used by Queen Mary at the Coronation in 1937 was offered from the Collection of HRH The Princess Margaret at Christieís in 2006, and sold for £38,400.
I am surprised how much more ornate his chair is compared to Queen Mary's chair.
