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. They are a fantastic looking pair of mid century chairs. they are upholstered in vivid red vinyl. Another nice design details is the Barcelona leg, they are 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. The other striking thing about them is the fantastic fabric, the original brown vinyl there are not many styles of chair that could carry this off but this pair does it with style. there are black studs in the back. CONDITION.As they are at the moment, they are in fantastic 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 legs. All of the wood is in good condition, the colour of the wood is a warm honey colour. The fabric is in great condition no tears or splits and the colours has not faded. Finally I will add that they are very comfortable. the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
