Seller: barrie5757 (657) 100%, Location: cambridge, Ships to: GB, Item: 262686855048 For sale here is this great pair of vintage East German 1960s Bartholomew cocktail chairs.Fantastic condition. DESCRIPTION,This fantastic pair of mid century chairs were made in East Germany sometime in the 1960swe bought them in Leipzig last month. You would have to go along way to find a better better pair. In a London mid century shop they would be £1,000+ This very stylish pair of chairs are typical of the style and design from this post-war East German era of the mid 1950s. The shape of the back flaring out from the bottom towards the top is the style known as a Bartholomew chair. They are in great original condition.This fraction smaller slightly narrower in the width at 60cm rather than 70cm which is the norm. They are a fantastic looking pair of mid century chairs. original fabric typical of this period I would say the photographs are a good representation of the colour. They are a great looking chair to stand out design features of the seat and the original fabric which complements the start of the chair very well, this along with the Barcelona leg which is splayed outwards, understated but a really effective way of lightening the whole chair. This style of chair are very fashionable at the moment, chairs from this period like these have become something of a style icon. so much so they are being reproduced more than any other style at the moment and most websites are asking £500 plus for the reproductions which don't have any of the charm these original ones do. CONDITION.As they are at the moment, they are in original condition they have not been restored in any way.The frames are very strong and sturdy and there is no damage to the main structure of the chairs, no woodworm, no wobbly arms or legs. All of the wood is in good condition, the colour of the wood on the arms is a warm honey colour. The fabric is in excellent condition and the colour has not faded at all.They are a fantastic shape and could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric if you so desire, but personally I feel they are perfect as they are. these chairs are 60+ years old so they are not meant there are a few signs in keeping with the age like a few scratches on the legs but nothing that I can photograph or mention in particular. Finally I will add that they are very comfortable. the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive. These chairs in a good London mid century shop would be £1,000 + I know that because I supply a lot of them. have a look at this link http://www.rockettstgeorge.co.uk/upcycled-1950s-bartholomew-cocktail-chair---citrus-orange-underground-velvet-27925-p.asp So here is your chance to buy a pair of great chairs at a trade price.
