Seller: barrie5757 (662) 100%, Location: cambridge, Ships to: GB, Item: 262640473329 For sale here is this great pair of vintage East German Bartholomew style cocktail chairs. Circa 1975/80 DESCRIPTION,This pair of armchairs were made in East Germany some time in the 1970s we bought them in Leipzig last month. They are in very good condition and they are very comfortable too. This stylish looking pair of chairs are typical of the style and design from this post-war East German era of the mid 1950s. but these ones are later ones, it was common in East Germany to use designs from earlier decades. The term "Bartholomew" refers to the shape of the back where it flares outwards from the seat to the top. Another nice design feature is the Barcelona leg, slim and tapering they splay outwards, a simple thing but they help to lift and lighten the feel of the chair as well as being designed to be stronger than a straight leg. This style of chair "Bartholomew Cocktail" 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 them is the fabric, which is all original and again typical of the patterns and colours used in the mid 1970's. They are posted in the same fabric but have used to slightly different colours this was quite common practice but then one I would describe as a wheat colour and the other one as just a cream with a brown vinyl back and sides.As they are at the moment, they are in original condition they have not been restored in any way. CONDITION.The frames are very strong and sturdy and there is no damage to the main structure of the chairs, no woodworm, no wobbly legs. All of the wood is in good condition. Overall they are in very good condition, the upholstery is clean. The fabric is in very good condition the colour not faded. I would say that the photos are a good representation of the colour. They are in ok shape but could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric if they were done then in a London mid century shop would be £900-£1200. I know that because I supply a lot of them So here is your chance to buy a pair of great chairs at a trade price.
