Default UFO S.H.A.D.O control room chair

Hello,
Can anyone give me any info on this chair?
It looks very similar/exactly(?) the same as the ones featured in the SHADO control room.
Its black leather on a chrome base,its definately 1960's but is it possible that it could have been an original prop?
Please email me for photos:

now@tesco.net

HERE IS A VERY RARE & SPECIAL

1960'S-1970'S

VINTAGE

CHROME & BLACK LEATHER

SWIVEL CHAIR-



VERY SIMILAR TO THE CHAIRS USED IN

GERRY ANDERSON'S

CLASSIC LIVE ACTION

U.F.O TV SERIES-SEE PHOTO.



THE CONDITION IS VERY GOOD,

COMMENSURATE WITH ITS VINTAGE-

(THE SWIVEL ACTION HAS BECOME SEIZED/STIFF)



THE INSET PICTURE SHOWS MY CHAIR PLACED INSIDE A STILL PHOTO FROM THE UFO TV SERIES,

THE ONLY DIFFERANCE FROM THE TV SERIES CHAIR IS THAT THE 4 CHROME 'SPUR' FEET ON THE BASE ARE FLAT WHEREAS IN THE TV SERIES THEY ARE VERTICAL

BUT IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THEY MAY HAVE BEEN REPLACED AT SOME TIME.



NOTE:

I AM NOT CLAIMING THAT THIS CHAIR WAS USED IN THE TV SERIES & I HAVE'NT BEEN ABLE TO FIND OUT ABOUT ITS PROVENANCE.

IF THERE IS A GERRY ANDERSON EXPERT OUT THERE WHO IS LOOKING AT THIS LISTING & KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT THE CHAIR I'D BE VERY PLEASED TO HEAR FROM YOU-



A QUESTION I'D LIKE TO KNOW THE ANSWER TO IS:

WERE THESE CHAIRS SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED FOR THE TV SERIES OR WHERE THEY AVAILABLE FROM A RETAIL OUTLET & USED FOR THEIR 'FUTURISTIC' LOOK?

(I BELIEVE THE CHAIR MAYBE ITALIAN IN ORIGIN)



MORE PHOTOS ARE AVAILABLE-

IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION OR

QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK.
