Condition Report

Overall in good condition. The chair is made entirely of a glassline paper that is originally rolled and then layered into a honeycomb-shaped design. The chair is originally packed and shipped folded flat like a lantern. Once opened, the structure is compressed and takes the form of the body that sits on it, giving it its final form. The present lot represents the “Honey Pop” chair in its final form, with a seating area flattened through use. The paper presents with light creasing and waviness as well scattered and minor tears to the side edges, the largest measuring approximately 1 inch and consistent with age and use. The paper with small scattered foxing spots concentrated to the proper right side of the chair, not visually distracting and consistent with age.
