Bruce Watt

Bruce Watt operated out of Auckland during the 1940s and 50s. His most recognisable object is a plywood folding chair named the "Storkline."

Storkline chairs were a staple choice for halls, churches and schools throughout New Zealand during the 1940s and 50s. These days very few remain as most were either dumped or burned during refurbishments.

Watt operated out of a workshop in Newmarket / Epsom. As well as manufacturing the Storkline folding chairs he apparently also made a range of early NZ toys called "Tink-E-Toys" from die-cast lead.
