Description

An authentic bentwood kid's chair made at the beginning of the 20th century by the thonet furniture company - and known as chair model number 1. Thonet has a great tradition of producing various furniture for children, which can be seen in the thonet sales catalogues from the second part of 19th century. We can find model no.1 published for the first time in the thonet catalogue in 1885, but this particular piece is believed to have been produced in the late 1920’s. The design of this chair is hugely influenced by the legendary, and perhaps the most successful chair in the whole of thonet’s history; model no. 14. This chair nicely shows the thonet renowned technique of wood bending. There is no decoration on any part of the wood but the very expressive organic form of the backrest and its two side supports are the main design feature. Using a round seat was a popular solution at thonet, it not only works with the curves but also made sitting on the chair comfortable. The chair is in good vintage condition with some minimal wear and patina on the wooden surface gained over the years. In a recent restoration, the frame has been strengthened and surface hand finished by shellac and nitro varnishes in order to achieve an original finish.
