Antique folding chairs with croco print, France, around 1890
At first glance these chairs look like regular folding chairs. Like they were made in the thousands in the last century.
On second glance you see that they nicer than you first thought. Because of the nice shape and the rounded back. But most of all because of the print die cut in the back and seat. Croco print, and it looks just splendid.
On the bottom you'll see the mark "foreign made " stamped. This stamp was obligated by the US and UK from 1887 to mark foreign produce more obviously. So that you were sure to know that by buying this produce you were neglecting your patriotic duty.
After WWII the law was withdrawn. So these chairs were made somewhere after 1887 and before 1945. Let's say somewhere in the middle, around 1930.
We had a lot of these but have only four left. Will only be sold as a pair.
Dimensions: back 82 cm, seating height 49 cm, seating depth 40 cm.
