PAIR OF AUSTRIAN BENTWOOD NO. 36 ARM "ANGEL CHAIRS"
Designed by Josef Kohn for Josef Jaworek Möbelfabriken, circa 1890
Item # 010QID22K
A fine pair of late 19th to early 20th century arm chairs designed by Josef Kohn and manufactured by the firm of Josef Jaworek, one still retaining the original label to the underside, these were offered as no. 36 in his catalogue and are a quite rare form with the little circle in the crest flanked by "wings". Howard Carter is pictured using the side chair version of this model in 1922 while examining King Tutankhamen. They are finished in a caning that remains in overall excellent condition.
We have eight matching side chairs that may still be available - check our inventory or contact us if these interest you.
Measurements: 19 5/8" D x 35 1/4" H x 18" W x 18 3/8" H to seat
Caning is a beautiful old caning, not original but vintage and beautifully patinated. The seats remain in excellent condition with a tight stretch and only the most minimal of cracking in the caning. A few modern screws added to the underside for strength.
