DESCRIPTION,This fantastic pair of mid century chairs were made in East Germany sometime in the 1960s.We bought them in Leipzig last month.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 cocktail chair. this pair are a really great shape with an exaggerated flare at the top this also makes them very comfortable. They are in great original condition they look like they were real posted sometime in the 1990s. They are a fantastic looking pair of mid century chairs a 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. CONDITION.Obviously these chairs are 50 years old so there is somewhere in keeping with the age but nothing so bad that I can single it out there are a few minor scratches on the legs and a little bit of wear on the legs but overall they are in very good condition. 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 good 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. If you did want to have them recovered they would not need a complete re-upholstery just the material which is not as costly. 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.
