A Fine Art Deco Bentwood and Rosewood Club Chair circa 1930
A FINE ART DECO BENTWOOD AND ROSEWOOD CLUB CHAIR
In a more recent period correct Deco damask; circa 1930
Item # 712CRD08P
A striking work of the Streamline Modern movement during the Art Deco period, this club chair is dressed in a gorgeous damask styled after the period with a deeply stuffed cushioning that renders it inordinately comfortable. The arms are gently highlighted with bentwood appliqués while the chair remains footless, instead resting over a rosewood molded base that steps out to conform with the seat cushion.
This chair was acquired from an estate along with a birch and rosewood desk and matching pair of cabinets, these very likely by the same designer as the present club chair. The provenance behind these is rather interesting and available to clients upon request. For the passionate collector of fine Art Deco examples, this is an eye-catching selection that remains in excellent condition throughout.
