Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan Bronze Verdigris Dining Chairs, Four, circa 1955

About

A set of four dining chairs by Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan recently procured from the estate of Shirley Temple. These collectible examples are from the early years of Lamb's work with Brown Jordan, dating from the mid 1950s. These armchairs are comprised of tubular bronze frames featuring the original highly attractive verdigris patinated finish and have been newly re-strung with woven sail cord, a braided cotton with a nylon core to prevent stretching. This new cording retains the integrity of the design while allowing this set to be fully functional and enjoyed for years to come. Note: Often times you will find the frames cleaned of the original patina that was developed over the years. When cleaned the frames appears to be dark brown (bronze colored). We do not advise this, as much of the collectible value and attraction to these designs come from the natural organic patina that has taken decades to develop into what we believe is natures art. Once cleaned it will take a very long time for the patina to develop back. In addition, the patina on this particular item was developed over the decades that it was owned by Shirley Temple Black. This sophisticated set would be a great addition used together or individually indoors or out as part of a classic, contemporary or mid-century modern dining room, living room, den, family room, office, patio, garden, sunroom, veranda or balcony. They would also be an apt choice for a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel patio, beer garden, members club, workspace studio or executive suite. Measurements: 33" H x 21.5" W x 20" D Seat height: 18" Excellent condition. Seats newly restrung and frames feature the original patina throughout. Signs of use commensurate with age are evident.
