Pair of Original Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan Armchairs, New Cording, circa 1959

About

An incredible pair of highly sought after and collectible armchairs by Walter Lamb for Brown Jordan. These rare original early production examples are from the early years of Lamb's work with Brown Jordan, dating towards late 1950s. These arm chairs are comprised of tubular copper frames featuring the original highly attractive verdigris patinated finish and have been newly re-strung with period correct 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 scrubbed of the original patina that was developed over the years. When scrubbed 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. Be cautious buying a Walter Lamb piece that does not have subtle to moderate patina. This sophisticated set of dining armchairs 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: 32" H x 21.5" W x 22.5" D Seat height: 17.5" Excellent condition. Seats newly restrung and frames feature the original patina throughout. Frame is sturdy and structurally sound. Ready for immediate use.
