About this item

This fantastic looking pair of mid century chairs were made in 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 this post-war East German era of the 1970s.
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 nice light colour and matches the legs all of the wood is in good condition.
The fabric is all original and is a emerald green 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.
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.

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 clean condition, they are 50+ years old so there is some signs of age, please check all pictures.
They are a great shape and could be recovered in a more contemporary fabric.
Finally I will add that they are very comfortable.
the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
