An Australian Icon - Original Arnotts Timber Courtesy Chair Circa 1920 -1940

We have not seen many of these gems, a true piece of Australian History.
This is an original timber courtesy chair, for the customers comfort, provided by Arnotts.
This country style chair features the  SAO on the back horizontal bar.
We believe SAO stands for Salvation Army Officer. 
The Powerhouse Museum states:
[commissioned by Arnott's], Australia, c. 1920-1940 to read more click powerhouse museum .
