Beautiful and hard to find set of four wooden art nouveau café chairs manufactured by Thonet. Thonet was the Austrian originator of the Bentwood chair. These are a modifed Bentwood design with a gorgeous organic floral design stencilled onto the back and seats. The iris and water design on the seats is a typical art nouveau motif. These chairs have the Thonet paper label on the base, Made in Czechoslovakia, some serial numbers and paper labels showing Cock brand with Chinese characters. I found these in Singapore and I assume Cock brand was the importer for the region. Very nice addition to an art nouveau furniture collection or bistro dining area.

Very Good vintage condition but they do need some restoration to bring them up to fabulous. The chairs are a bit wobbly and need some tightening up --reglued and replacement screws as several are missing. The chairs naturally show signs of wear and use.

SIZE: Approx. 34" (87cm) tall, seat is 16" (40cm) wide approx.

SHIPPING: These chairs are very heavy and very bulky, too big for Canadapost. I can send them within North America by UPS but the cost will be substantial. For example the cost to send them to New York would be around $150. Please email with your Canadian postal code or US state and I will try to get a shipping quote for you. Thanks!
