Item # 611GQH21A
A rare and unusual dining set designed by Milo Baughman and manufactured by Thayer Coggin in High Point, NC during the third quarter of the 20th century, the form is closely reminiscent of the Art Deco period. High quality chromed steel shines brilliantly after decades of use, the hoop back crafted from flat bar steel with small steel tabs beneath that affix the chair back. Hollow tubes repeat along the length of the arm and are welded into the hooped footing. The same form is used in the table structure, which is finished with an ovular piece of bevelled glass. The stretcher bar of a few chairs retains the original sticker noting it as style 1859, one original label from beneath the chairs retained in an envelope. It is a remarkable set.
