About this item

This great looking mid century chair was made in East Germany sometime in the 1970's
we bought it in Berlin last month.
This very stylish chair is in ORIGINAL and good condition. It has the appearance of a cocktail chair but slightly shorter legs which put it in the category of fireside/nursing chair in the seat is a little bit lower than a cocktail chair.
The standout design features of this chair is shape of the back which is curved and tapers out from the bottom to the top this style is called a Bartholomew chair
and then the angle of shaped wooden arm is a nice detail too also the extra deep seat.
These chairs are very popular at the moment and feel very contemporary to today's tastes.
It also has its original fabric which suits the chair very well I would say that the photographs are a good representation of the colour which is a colour.
It is a fantastic looking chair which ever way you look at it and would bring a lot of style to any room in the house.
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.
it is in original condition.
The frame is strong and sturdy and there is no damage to the main structure of the chairs, no woodworm.
All of the wood is in good condition, there is a little area of wear to the polish on the arms,
(see picture)
The fabric is in good condition it is 50+ years old so obviously there are some signs of age.
Finally I will add that it is very very comfortable.
the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
