Pair of rare antique Thonet Bentwood dining chairs. With embossed Crocodile skin patterned plywood detail. Poland, Europe. c1930.
Dimensions- 880 h x 390 w x 490 d mm 465 seat h mm
Design/ origin- A unique and rare pair of Bentwood chairs. Petite size for the narrow street cafes of Europe. These chairs have all the age and character you would expect from a genuine antique piece. Original finish which has left a cracked glaze effect and plenty of old knocks. Both chairs are stamped on the base with a paper plaque and embossed stamp.
Condition- Overall condition is consistent with age. Oil and waxed recently. There are the usual wear and tear as expected. An old repair on one of the top back-rest rails can be seen. Both seats hold strong. However one has lost much of it's embossed detail, with a few raised areas. Chairs hold firm, but like any Bentwood, a little wobbly.
