About this item

This great looking 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 Germany during this era of the 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. I personally think that this model of chair is the most comfortable chair that I sell.
The colour of the wood is a dark colour and matches the legs all of the wood is in good condition, they have been reupholstered at some point in the last 20/15 years it looks like the 1990s for me but it's difficult with things from East Germany because they were a decade at least behind us with fashions for materials and things like that. The fact that this material is a little bit dated now means that I have not priced them as much as I would have done if they had been neutral colour or original material so this is reflected in the price, this model was better material I normally get in the region of £600+ for seeing if this fabric doesn't bother you then here is your chance to get a bargain.
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.
They are a fantastic looking pair of mid-century chairs.
Another nice design detail is the Barcelona leg, they are splayed outwards, understated but a really effective way of lightening the whole chair.
This style of the chair is very fashionable at the moment,
chairs from this period like these have become something of a style icon.

As they are at the moment, they are in 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 polish on the arms does have a little bit of crackling and wear.
Finally, I will add that they are very comfortable.
the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
