Although we’re a classic car company, sometimes we get our hands on other unique transportation devices, such as this late Victorian bath chair that Gordan has purchased!

We’re not sure of the exact history of this wheelchair, however, we know its roughly late victorian, otherwise, its history is an open book!

Gordan originally purchased it as a possible decoration piece for his house but has since decided it would make a great quirky signature piece at our hanger!

Bath chairs themselves were originally designed by James Heath of Bath in 1750. Mainly designed for the elderly in its former years, this wheelchair device later became popular at the seaside. The design enables it to be pushed from the back and steered via the rod at the front.
