In 1884 a 29 year old man came to Australia in the S.S. Gulf of Carpentaria from High Wycombe, centre of the chair making industry in the county of Buckinghamshire, England.

Anyone lucky enough to own a George Peddle chair can be assured that if it is in good order it is worth four hundred dollars.  It is a collector's piece.

The chair has emerged as one of Tasmania's first antiques made from local timber and though it grows increasingly sought after in the market, the story of the maker has never been fully told.

Here it is.
