Product Description

A wonderful set of Thonet chairs…

Dating to the latter part of the 19th century, circa 1890s, this is a rare set of Thonet bentwood chairs. We are delighted to have this set on offer in their original condition, and complete with the makers mark underneath. The chairs show a good amount of usage, partnered with a splattering of wear and tear. The craftsmanship on these pieces is wonderful, and all one has to do is look underneath to see the detailing and early materials used. Finished in a faux leather and studded with metal pins, these chairs for us are exceptional

Structurally the chairs are good, and perfectly fine to sit on. They may have a slight ‘wobble’ when seated, but this would only bother a perfectionist (we think). We wanted to offer these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore a rub down and a clear wax would naturally bring these to life. Equally, a little ‘tightening’ here and there may give the chairs more strength. The patina for is is wonderful too, and they ooze charm and authenticity…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The chairs are perfectly functional, but as described they have a slight wobble. There are some tatty areas across the wood with some ‘aesthetic’ imperfections. That said, we feel the current condition simply adds to their charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
