Six chaises PJ-SI-28-B, dites Office chairs


vers 1955-1956


teck, cannage et marquages à la peinture


chacune : 78 x 51,5 x 52 cm ; 30 ¾ x 20 ¼ x 20 ½ in.

Good overall condition consistent with age and use. Each chair has been re-varnished at a later stage and presents with traces of discoloration. The teak presents with dents, losses (the largest approximately 4 x 0,4 cm on the right armrest of one chair) and surface scratches throughout. The cane appears to have been replaced at a later stage. There are engraved letters on one armrest and left leg on chair, on the back top of another one and on the seat front part on a third one. On five chairs, there is a white paint inscription, sometimes located on the top back, on the seat back and on the left armrest. There are felt pen inscription on each chair, sometimes located on the back top, on the armrests and on the back seat.
