Pair of Alfred Grenander Attributed Birch Armchairs, Sweden, Late 19th Century

About

A pair of elegant and curved Swedish armchairs made of birch veneer with a (newer) fabric upholstery. The tapering legs, curving outwards, and the curved backrest with a carved out scroll are inspired by the classic Klismos chairs. Other neoclassical elements are the armrests, reminiscent of an entablature resting on two columns. The backrest of one of the chairs has signs of a previous rstoration, but they are in an overall good condition. Upholstery is aged but in good condition. The wood is nicely used and abused, construction wise condition is good. The chairs show a strong resemblance to the chairs by Alfred Grenander. Grenander (1863-1931) was an architect and designer who was born and educated in Sweden, but moved to Berlin in 1885. Here he, among other projects, designed many of the U-Bahn stations. He also built a number of villas, which he furnished as well.
