I am offering to pay as like this at the moment they are not reproduction I bought them as a set of four. DESCRIPTION,This great pair of mid century chairs were made in East Germany sometime in the 1970swe bought them in Leipzig last month.This very stylish pair of chairs are typical of the style and design from East German in the mid 1970s. 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 the fabric is in good condition. These chairs were made sometime in the 1970s using the design and styles from an earlier this is common practice in Eastern Europe and this time they used moulds and designs from earlier times rather than update them with new ones.This is reflected in the price They are a fantastic looking pair of mid century chairs. 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. CONDITIONThe 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 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, they do not need to be re-upholstered just re-covered. Finally I will add that they are very comfortable. the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
