Provenance and Background Info
(Written in 2011. This set of 4 chairs sold for $895 in 2011. These days in 2018 I’d value the same set of 4 at $995. I rarely stock sets of 4 vintage dining chairs anymore. I would certainly stock a set of 6 in this design though. (I would sell this exact design as a SET OF 6 CHAIRS FOR AROUND $1800 (2018). If you’re a dealer (you have a shop or market stall) I would represent 4 of these chairs on your behalf (I’d price them at around $995 for 4). You’d need excellent photos of your set. 5% COMMISSION FEE for shop owners. We will also work at bringing new clientele into your shop or your market stall. We need about 10 photos from all angles- your photos would have to be similar in quality to those shown in this listing. If you don’t have a shop and you’re a dealer, we’d also stock an item like this online in iNVISeDGE, we’d find an online buyer for you and take control of the sales process on your behalf- in this case our commission fee would be 15%. Again we’d need about 10-14 good photos from various angles- about as good as those shown in this listing.)
Written in 2018. I can no longer find the description I wrote for this set in 2011. I don’t know the manufacturer of these chairs. They may be European- the timber looks a bit different to what I see in Australian-made chairs in this style, made in the 1960’s. I’m not entirely sure. They also may have been done by Moderntone, a successful furniture-making firm that operated in Melbourne in 1960’s. They are based on the Danish #75 dining chairs by Niels Moller.
