Unlike any furniture item you might have ever seen before, this custom-made chair, the 'Game of Thrones' Iron Throne has been specifically designed to imitate the proud kings seat in the Seven Kingdoms. This particular Iron Throne was originally constructed on the TV show by Aegon I Targaryen, the conqueror of the Seven Kingdoms and the founder of the ruling Targaryen dynasty of Westeros, also known as Aegon the Conqueror or Aegon the Dragon, for which he used the thousands of swords surrendered by his defeated enemies.
It is originally made of thousands swords that actually took a total of 59 days to skillfully hammer out into Iron Throne. Jagged edges and spike in each and every direction makes this Game of Thrones chair look like an intimidating lounge. The version for sale has however been constructed of hand-painted and hand-finished fiberglass and fire-proof resin that has been artistically turned and twisted to re-create the chair design of Game of Thrones.
Extra large in size, measuring 7’2” in height and close to 5’11”’ in depth and 5’.5” in width, while weighing 350 pounds, this impressive custom-made piece of furniture is truly a collectible.
