They are all the rage at the moment, wicker and rotan chairs. So they are back in production on a large scale. But those "newbies" lack the elegance of this vintage one. The root of the difference can be trailed back to......the cost of labour. 

This one is from the sixties, maybe even the fifties, from Spain. Craftsman were still around in droves and they worked for a pittance.  They took their time, and they still had the time,  to really craft their products to the best of their ability.  "A bit more wickerwork here and let's just ad a little frill over there, and why not rotate the leg?"

Pride in their job, love for their craft. And it shows.  In this modern day and age, where everybody is in a rush and stuff has  to be finished by yesteryear , it is hard to commission a chair like this. And if you can find a craftsman that is willing to do it for you, please bring 3 credits cards  and to be on the save side bring your debit card and some cash as well. 

So that is why they are factory  made nowadays. And it shows. But this beauty still has that elegance and grandeur that comes with handmade craftsmanship. 

In Southern Spain this chair spent it's whole live on a sheltered porch. But for the Dutch climate  I would not recommend to keep it outside all year round. Sunny days let it sit outside, with damp or rainy weather, take her back in. Treat her like the old lady she is. 

For the moment this chair is in our storage. If you want to see it in real life, give us a call before you come and we will make sure it is ready and waiting for you when you come in. 

Dimensions: back rest 74 cm heigh, seating height 40 cm, (without pillow), width 86 cm, deep 54 cm, seating depth 44 cm.
