If you have ever visited Belfast City Hall and taken one of the excellent conducted tours that are on offer (free of charge) you will have seen the two chairs upon which King George V and Queen Mary sat on June 22, 1921, when they were opening Northern Ireland’s newly constituted parliament.

I’ve got to confess that, the last time I saw them, they were looking a little shabby, but it appears that they have recently been restored.
