  • A set of six Ercol elm and ash 'CC41' dining chairs, each marked clearly with the stamp ‘CC41’. We believe these are a set of original Ercol chairs designed by Lucian Ercolarni for the Board of Trade in the 1940s, for what was termed ‘Utility Furniture’.

    The first catalogue of Utility Furniture was published in 1943 with a collection of around 30 pieces. They were designed by an advisory committed headed by the designer Gordon Russell in order to cope with the shortage of raw materials during the war. Please see evidence of these wonderful chairs in their original 1943 brochure described as 'Dining Chair 4A'.

    The pieces were simple and modern, with a slight nod to the Arts and Crafts movement that had been popular at the turn of the century. Every piece produced had to conform to the utility scheme standards and was stamped with the logo ‘Control Commodity 1941’.
