Provenance and Background Info

This description was written in 2022.

A set of SIX sculptural dining chairs with Danish influence by the highly-celebrated Australian company TH Brown & Sons. This set was made BY HAND in Adelaide in the early 1960’s. I believe this is a Danish design TH Brown and Sons won the license to produce. From what I read (a long time back so you can’t quote me on this) TH Brown won this license ahead of other Australian furniture firms at the time because the Danish designers had confidence that TH Brown & Sons had the ability of creating the design to the exact same standard as Danish producers.

This design is a favourite of mine but I get these chairs very rarely. There is a multitude of reasons for this which I won’t go into here- the main reason is that they’re RARE. The last time I stocked this design was 2016. Whenever I photograph these chairs there’s a flow I fall in love with all over again. (After 20 years in this business, I love this design just as much as the first time I saw it- probably even more.)

These chairs are at the height of sculptural elegance. The refined sophistication appears simple but when you look closely you realize the craftsmanship is anything but simple. This is furniture craftsmanship at its finest.

I have carefully checked over every chair in this set and guarantee (here in writing) that all 6 chairs NO movement in any joint, NO cracks around any joint and NO issue that affects the structural integrity of any chair at all. After about 50 years of use EVERY chair is rock-solid and sturdy. One of the six chairs, sustained a minor break that was PROFESSIONALLY REPAIRED AT LEAST 10 YEARS AGO- this chair is now as strong as it was when built back in the early-1960’s. It sounds incredible that ALL these chairs are solid and sturdy after about 60 YEARS of use but this is the result of the inner joints being crafted to inter-lock perfectly at every corner. This is rarely done in furniture anymore so you have to keep going out to buy more. (I sold a similar set of these chairs in April 2014 and the customer left a positive feedback on ebay around May 2014. Google, invisedge ebay to read my feedback spanning 20 years.)

This design by TH Brown is a lot stronger and more durable than virtually every other design in this style. Additionally, the comfort is extremely good (a lot better than similar designs such as the FLER 64)- the back on these is higher and the curve is pronounced which further aids the comfort. These chairs also offer solid investment appeal. I recently saw them priced at $700 EACH in an upmarket Melbourne store. At this price the investment appeal is a no-brainer! These are the VERY BEST in mid-century modern craftsmanship at a price you won’t see again in other mid-century stores.

These chairs can sell for more than $700 a chair by experienced dealers ($4200 for six)- written 2022. And values for these CONSTANTLY go up- I’ve seen this first hand over the last 20 years. Many modern dining chairs end up at as landfill within years but when sets of vintage chairs look like this after 60 years of use, buyers have full confidence of the quality they’re investing in before they even shell out a cent. There are very few better ways to invest in your home and reduce landfill.

2022

Overall this FULL set is in brilliant original condition for the age (early-1960's). They’re about 60 years old and EVERY chair presents very well. The frames are all solid and sturdy with NO current breaks, NO movement in any joint area, NO cracks in any joint area (nothing of the sort). One chair sustained a break AT LEAST 10 years ago that was repaired at the time BY A PROFESSIONAL. It is now as strong as it was when the chairs were first made. The repair is not noticeable unless you're inspecting this area very carefully (see my close-up photos in this listing and use the SUPER-SIZE tool). This chair has been used for AT LEAST 10 YEARS since it was professionally repaired with no problems at all. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The timber on all chairs may have a few minor surface marks and knocks but nothing that's noticed. The quality of the build is second to none- TH Brown & Sons are a highly respected brand and made BETTER than any Parker chair. Note the thickness of the sculptured frames (in SOLID HARDWOOD- similar Parker chairs have PLYWOOD backs with a TEAK VENEER!). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The ORIGINAL vinyl is vintage and PREMIUM IN QUALITY. The vinyl is soft, pliable and comfortable after about 60 years of use. Some modern vinyls will crack and split within years. Not this VINTAGE vinyl. The vinyl may have a couple of very minor signs of use but every chair is in incredible condition overall for chairs of this age. The original cushioning from the 1960's is incredible in quality- it's still plush and super-comfortable. The chairs present extremely well and are ready to be used and loved for another 60 years (providing you use them with some sense- do NOT let teenager kids swing back on 2 legs- they should be sat on using four legs. They are chairs- not some fun-machine!) _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The last set of these chairs we had measured cm across, with a depth of about cm (including the posts). This design has a total height of cm. Seat height is about cm. Depth of seat- cm. FREIGHT- approx 1.3 cbm all up for all 6. Read my 1200+ feedback comments on ebay to be assured that these chairs are exactly as described and that I will not stock items unless they are in excellent condition.
