Pair of Armchairs
executed by Comté, Buenos Aires, Argentina
patinated wrought iron, leather upholstery
35 1/4 x 24 x 28 in. (89.5 x 60.9 x 71.1 cm) each
Overall in good condition. The leather is in well-preserved condition and has acquired a rich and variegated patina with age. The leather with some discoloration, minor surface wear, surface scratches and wrinkling throughout, mainly concentrated to the seats and consistent with age and gentle use. One armrest with more concentrated areas of abrasion to the leather surface covering an area measuring approximately 5 x 4 inches. The patinated iron surfaces may have been repatinated at some point in their history and present with some light scuffing, occasional areas of discoloration, and surface scratches throughout consistent with age and gentle use. The side lacing on each chair with occasional looseness but overall stable and not affecting functionality. A highly desirable form by Jean-Michel Frank.
