$1,850.73

About

Early model of chair created by thonet in 1851 for first international exposition of London. This example shows some differences with the 2 chairs on catalogue and is a mixed between the 2. It’s in relatively good condition but there are some wormhole and some part are glued or repaired. Even in this state it’s possible to seat on it. But most of all this is a very important chair in history of the design very uncommon and very rare to find!
