The SS Normandie, considered the ultimate in Art Deco period ocean liners, unfortunately lived a very short life. Launched in 1935, it sailed only a few years before being re-commissioned to military transport duty. The ship was sunk in New York harbor in 1942, after suffering a fire onboard. Undeniably the most glamorous of areas on the ship was the Grand Dining Room, with illuminated wall panels by Rene Lalique. The chairs for the dining room were designed by Pierre Patout (French 1879 - 1965), as were many of the ships furnishings. The chair features graceful curves, finished off with a cast bronze tipped foot. The finish is period original, and displays very well. The seats have been re-upholstered in a geometric Art Deco inspired fabric, and are also in very fine condition. Four are available, but priced as pairs. By the way, there is also a pair in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of New York City.
