About this item

For sale here, buy it now, is this great pair of vintage East German 1960s barrel back cocktail chairs.

This great 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 mid 1950s/60s.

The shape of the back is known as a barrel back cocktail chair, they are one of the most popular shapes that are being copied at the moment in dining chairs and cocktail chairs these are original 1960s, the real deal.

They are in great condition like most furniture from Eastern Europe in this period they have been very well looked after, the fantastic original fabric is in great condition and suits the chairs very well, it was quite common to use two slightly different colours in the same material.

They are a fantastic looking pair of mid chairs which ever way you look at them, a 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.

As they are at the moment, they are in very good condition.
The frames are very strong and sturdy and there is no damage to the main structure of the chairs.
All of the wood is in good condition, the colour of the wood is a warm honey colour.

The fabric is in excellent condition and the colour has not faded at all.

Finally I will add that they are very comfortable. the seat is sprung but firm and the shape of the back is very supportive.
