This is a fine quality set of five bentwood beech hoop back kitchen-dining chairs, attributable to Thonet, circa 1920, of European provenance, in good original condition. A famous design first used around 1850 by the Michael Thonet Company in Germany for cafes, restaurants and bars around Europe. Constructed from steam bent beech, these chairs feature backs comprising of one larger curved outer hoop, with a smaller curved inner hoop, converging at the top. The back connects directly to the solid circular beech seat, which boasts excellent grain configuration. The chairs rest on splayed legs, with the outer hoop of the chair backs continuing downwards to form the two rear legs in one single piece. A single curved stretcher for additional strength unites the legs. The chairs feature a stunning rich colour with fabulous grain configuration visible on the seats. These chairs boast classic bentwood styling, and they would be at home in either a traditional or contemporary setting. They also consume very little space. This is a true set of chairs; they have not been matched together from individual chairs.
The chairs feature a rich brown beech colour. As they boast the original polish, they have a fantastic colour and patination; this can only be achieved through the years of care and cleaning they have received.
These chairs would look superb in the kitchen or dining room. They would certainly grace any home and are a great investment they are extremely functional. So don’t miss out on your chance to own a lovely set of chairs.
