The original wood seats of these chairs were damaged beyond repair and so I opted to replace and upholster them.

The new chair seats are upholstered in purple Alexander Girard vintage overstock fabric from the Herman Miller factory in Zeeland, Michigan.

The chairs are not exactly the same size but are very close. I call them Irish twins! The back and side frame design of each is also slightly different. The smaller of two is the one on left in the photo.

They are $75.00 each.

Both original chair seats had labels on them.

The smaller chair was manufactured by Jacob & Josef Kohn and Mundus, an Austrian formed in 1914 when Kohn merged with Mundus. In 1922 the company merged with Thonet so this chair dates from between 1914 and 1922.

It measures:

15" wide
14" deep
20" seat height
34 1/2" overall height

The other slightly larger one had a Wiener Mobel label and seems to have been imported to the U.S. by a company located in NYC from what I can tell from what's left of the label.

It measures:

16 1/2" wide
17" deep
19 1/2" seat height
35 1/2" overall height

The chairs are solid and structurally sound. As with many vintage bentwood chairs each chair has some splits and cracks (please see photos). These are on the back frame, seat and side pieces. The cracks don't seem to have an effect on either of the chairs' structural integrity. There is also general surface wear on the legs of both chairs. I am happy to send more photos f you would like to see them.

The 4th photo in the collage is of the finished under side of one of the chairs. The silver brackets and black backing are new.

Shipping Options:

Please message me before purchasing.

I have estimated shipping to be $30.00 for each chair but before purchasing please contact me with your zip code. The most reasonable way to ship these chairs is via Greyhound Package Express where you will pick-up from the nearest terminal. I will get back to you as quickly as possible with a quote.

Please read shipping policies for more info.

Curbside delivery to the NYC metropolitan area is also an option. There is a $30.00 delivery charge to deliver each or both chairs and it is paid in cash on delivery.

Please feel free to ask any and all questions!
