DESCRIPTION,This fantastic mid century chair was made in East Germany sometime in the 1950'swe bought it in Leipzig last month. This very stylish chair is the one of the best cocktail chair I have seen all year, it is great quality and in fantastic condition and is a bit better than the usual model as it has an exaggerated flare to the back and is segmented into five parts. Also the use of the piping to exaggerate the line of the chair is very clever this chair has a profile that which ever way you look at it it would bring a lot of style to any room. It 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 cocktail chair. It also has all the original fabric typical of this period with lovely styling with little details like the splayed tapering Barcelona leg at the front and back, 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. The other striking thing about it is the fantastic fabric, which is all original and again typical of the patterns and colours used in the 1960's. CONDITIONIt is in original condition it has 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 colour. The fabric is in pretty good condition and the colour has not faded are a couple of areas of where one on the shoulder and a little bit on the piping on the front of the seat but for its age it really is in good condition. (see pictures). It is a fantastic shape and could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric if you so desire, but personally I feel it is perfect as it is. Finally I will add that they are very comfortable. the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive. This chair in a good London mid century shop would be £500+. I know that because I supply a lot of them. if I had a pair I would ask £700 So here is your chance to buy a great chair at a trade price.
