This is an iNVISeDGE “Torpedo Listing” and was priced to sell immediately- it SOLD immediately (within the first 24 hours of being listed on this website). Keep following the NEWLY LISTED section.
The price is for the single ARMCHAIR in AS FOUND condition. (In fully original, unrestored condition.)
IMPORTANT NOTE- the chair on offer is lighter in tone than is depicted in virtually all the photos. These photos were taken very late in the day so the light was very low. The cane is pretty much a normal vintage rattan colour- it’s not as dark as most of the photos show.
PLEASE LOOK AT ALL PHOTOS IN THIS LISTING CLOSELY. For a Torpedo listing, the photos depict the condition of this piece and it’s the buyer’s responsibility to use the ZOOM-IN tool to view all photos (and parts of the chair) closely to ascertain the condition. Torpedo listings are not as comprehensive as normal iNVISeDGE listings. In order to list TORPEDO items at these prices, there will be NO condition description written for Torpedo listings. To see the chair up close and personal use the ZOOM-IN tool on this website.
Quick Write-Up (for a Torpedo Listing)
A very cool Pretzel Lounge Arm Chair in the Paul Frankl style. This is an authentic VINTAGE piece from the 1960’s. Priced for quick sale and for pick-up from the Caloundra, Sunshine Coast this long weekend (until Monday, 7th October 2019). I’d value a pair of these in iNVISeDGE with no cushions at $700-$750 and a single at about $300). If this chair doesn’t sell for this price by Monday it will be moved to Brisbane- sorry, it SOLD immediately.
I bought this Pretzel lounge chair to style a beach apartment (before I went into the apartment!). After going in I realised I had space for a pair so the single was never restored or used. (See the other photos provided- the pair is NOT available but shows how cool Pretzel lounge chairs go in a beach apartment.)
THIS CHAIR IS IN FULLY ORIGINAL CONDITION- in AS FOUND condition and has not been restored at all. It presents well overall- it’s solid, strong and sturdy- these chairs are basically indestructible.
