TWO "BERGER" STOOLS
11 in. (27.9 cm) high each
12½ in. (31.7 cm) diameter each
Overall in very good condition. The wooden surfaces in original, age-appropriate condition present with light surface scratches, minor indentations, and areas of light discoloration throughout consistent with age and gentle use. The seating area of both chairs presents with spotty occasional water marks consistent with use. One stool with two age fissures concentrated to one side edge and consistent with the natural evolution of the wood. One area of loss to the wood on one foot has been professionally and sensitively restored in a manner that is consistent with the original surface. The leg to one stool has been restabalized to the seat to maintain the functionality of the piece. An iconic model by Perriand offered as a complementary pair.
The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.
