Director's chair made of wood with canvas seat and back rest. The canvas is a dark maroon colour. The back of the back rest has an illustration of Roald Dahl's Big Friendly Giant
The chair is foldable with hinges on each side of the seat.

Object History
Director's chair custom made for Jimmy by a colleague on the set of the BFG. A similar one was made for Steven Spielberg by the same colleague.
Jimmy Chow worked in TV and film as a property master for more than 42 years. A property master is responsible for building and procuring props that actors handle and use. This sometimes means making replica items that are lighter, false or make filming easier on the actor. This differs from set decoration, which uses props to create a backdrop and is less central to the action on set.
Jimmy Chow was responsible for designing, managing, and sourcing props for films such as: BFG, Warcraft: The Beginning, X-Men 2, Fantastic Four, Watchman, Tron: Legacy, Little Women, Seven Years in Tibet, Shanghai Noon, The Shipping News, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, The Changeling, Man of Steel (Superman), Snow Falling on Cedars, Legends of the Fall, And the Sea Will Tell, and Once a Thief.
He entered the film industry in 1973 working for CBC Vancouver and gained valuable experience working on the set of the television series The Beachcombers, which launched his career.

Enid Anderson (Knight) was born in 1926 and grew up in Vancouver. She met her husband Perry Knight and they married in 1953. Over the years, Perry was transferred for work and they moved several times. In 1971 they moved to Burnaby and remained for 35 years. This child's rocking chair was a gift to Enid from her Aunt Elsie and Uncle Bill Anderson on her 3rd birthday on December 1, 1929. It was enjoyed by Enid and her sister, Lorraine and then by their children. Enid passed away in May 2008 and Perry in June 2016. Their children, Nancie and Bill chose to donate the rocker to Heritage Village since their parents enjoyed visiting the Village and had previously donated items for display.
