A cast director’s chair from the Oscar-winning Steven Spielberg war epic Saving Private Ryan.
After the death of his brothers on D-Day, orders come down from high command for the retrieval of Private James Ryan (Matt Damon) from behind enemy lines. Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) and his squad set out through war-torn Normandy to find him, battling the Germans all the way.
Director’s chairs were used by the film’s cast and crew to watch the filming and rest between takes, with this chair designated for a member of the film’s cast. The folding chair is made from stained wood with metal hinges and displays a built-in foot rest. The seat and chairback are made from black canvas, with the chairback featuring white printed text which reads. Both sides of the chairback have holes for placing on a chair. The left arm of the chair also features a ‘bag’ made from the same canvas material.
The piece displays some wear from production use including light stains and minor marks on the back and bag, and scuffs on the wood and foot rest. However, despite this wear, the chair remains in very good condition.
