For local champions of every sort!
This chair was made for the Great Exhibition – a huge display of designs from around the World, organised by Prince Albert – in 1851. It was made by Hutchinson of High Wycombe.
The makers called it the Champion Chair as it was highly decorative and ornately carved. The name was somewhat optimistic, and the chair did not actually win a prize.
