About this item

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

This great looking pair of mid century chairs were made in Germany sometime in the 1960s they look like they have been reupholstered sometime in the last 20 years, the choice of fabric suites them very well they have used a good quality upholstery fabric.

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.
They are the original design for cocktail chairs with the scalloped back.

The shape of the back flaring out from the bottom towards the top is the style known as a Bartholomew cocktail chair,

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.
so much so they are being reproduced more than any other style at the moment.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 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.
