Where is the original Emperor Palpatine chair from Return of the Jedi (1983) Movie?

Other than contacting Lucasfilm…
 

Norman Reynolds is likely your best bet as to someone having an idea where the chair ended up / what happened to it.

Bill Hargreaves would be another to likely know. Maybe George too? Perhaps for his own museum opening soon?
 

Jedit: I seem to remember there being photo opportunities with the chair at one of the Celebrations - whilst it could have been the real thing - it could also have just been a good replica…

(Sorry…)

Han: Hey Lando! You kept your promise, right? Not a scratch?
Lando: Well, what’s left of her isn’t scratched. All the scratched parts got knocked off along the way.
Han (exasperated): Knocked off?!

Jason definitely knows the information stored on this site very well - I’m thinking that the suggestions he’s given might well be the best you could get from originaltrilogy.com. Have you looked into trying to contact these people? I’ve seen you asking around on twitter, and while you’ve put great effort into this search, if I’m being pessimistic I really doubt that random fans are going to know the location of this chair since it doesn’t seem to be common knowledge. You really might have to look at getting in touch with people who have worked in high positions at Lucasfilm, or in the props department of ROTJ.

Try prop forums, like therpf.

I didn’t think it would be a Top Secret
