HUNDREDS OF AMAZING CHAIRS AND OTHER GREAT ITEMS http://stores.ebay.co.uk/LA-BELLE-BAZAAR For sale here is this great pair of vintage East German 1960s Bartholomew cocktail Armchairs.Original condition. DESCRIPTION,This fantastic looking pair of mid century chairs were made in East Germany sometime in the 1960swe bought them in Leipzig last month. They are in original and excellent condition. This very stylish pair of chairs are typical of the style and design from this post-war East German era of the mid 1960s. The shape of the back flaring out from the bottom towards the top is the style known as a Bartholomew chair. They are a classic cocktail chair design with arms. The colour of the wood is a nice light colour and matches the legs all of the wood is in good condition. The fabric is all original and is a burnt orange in colour, the close-up picture of the material is a good representation of the colour. You can see from the depth of the seat that there is a large spring mechanism in the seat which makes for a very comfortable chair with 9 large 8 inch springs 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 and most websites are asking £500+ each for the reproductions which don't have any of the charm these original ones do. CONDITION.As they are at the moment, they are in 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 arms or legs. All of the wood is in good condition. The fabric is in good and clean condition. They are a great shape and could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric if you so desire, but personally I feel they are perfect as they are. 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.
