Original Westport Chair by Harry Bunnell

$8,500

About

Original Westport Adirondack chair by Harry Bunnell. Designed by Thomas Lee in 1903, patented and manufactured by Harry Bunnell beginning in 1905. This early modernist form was a precursor to later American and European designs of the 20th century. As a chair primarily used outdoors, few have survived and this is a rare early example. Signed with impressed mark to back. Distressed condition with remnants of original and post-original paint.
