About this item

This pair of armchairs were made in East Germany some time in the 1970s
we bought them in Leipzig last month.
They are in good condition and they are very comfortable too.

THIS PARTICULAR PAIR ARE A SMALLER THAN AVERAGE PAIR ONLY BY 5/10% BUT THEY ARE MORE SUITED TO A BEDROOM CHAIR THAN A LOUNGE OR LIVING ROOM CHAIR.

73 cm tall X 70 cm deep X 62 cm wide (across the shoulder)
seat height 40 cm seat depth 46CM

This style of cocktail chair was first made in the 1950s but I feel that this particular pair were made sometime around 1975.
It was quite common to use earlier designs in east Germany in later decades.

The term "Bartholomew" cocktail chair
refers to the shape of the back where it flares outwards from the seat to the top.
Another nice design feature is the Barcelona leg, slim and tapering they splay outwards,
a simple thing but they help to lift and lighten the feel of the chair
as well as being designed to be stronger than a straight leg.

This style of chair "Bartholomew Cocktail" 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.
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, the colour of the wood on the arms and legs is a warm honey colour.

There is one small hole in the fabric where the left arm meet the back (see picture) I didn't notice this at first because it's quite difficult to see. This is reflected in the price. I have reduced them by approximately £60 because of this.

Overall they are in good condition, the upholstery is in good and clean condition I have not cleaned them I did not think it was necessary.

Obviously they are 40+ years old so there are some signs of age please check all photographs clearly.

They are in good shape but could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric if they were done then in a London mid century shop would be £700. I know that because I supply a lot of them
So here is your chance to buy a pair of great chairs at a trade price.
