About

THONET SET OF SEVEN CHAIRS made in Bistritz (Bystrice) / Czechoslovakia: Concerning Thonet firm label existing at reverse side of each chair. beech wood / mahogany stained / refurbished by hand made circa 1925 Design made by circle of JOSEF HOFFMANN (1870-1956) or OTTO PRUTSCHER (1880-1949) A special feature is these chairs' stunningly manufactured backrest made of seven vertical struttings attached to middle area; additionally, a strutting decorating each lateral side connects the chairs' seat with backrest which has half-round frame at top area. Generally, these chairs are of very elegant appearance ! There is a chair published in KOHN CATALOGUE of 1916 which is attributed to circle of Josef HOFFMANN (look, please, at concerning picture shown above): Relating chair has model number 369 /5. - Jiri Uhlir, author of a very informative book about chairs (= Vom Wiener Stuhl zum Architektenmoebel / From Viennese Chair to Architect's Furniture, published by Boehlau, Vienna/Cologne/Weimar 2009, pages 105 and 107) stated that this chair deriving from Hoffmann's circle had been manufactured not only by Kohn, but also by other manufactories. There is no doubt that the THONET CHAIRS presented here have a formal relation with this chair KOHN model 369/5 attributed to circle of Josef HOFFMANN, but, too, it should be pointed to the fact that the greatest differences compared to Hoffmann's chair are the absence of the feet's struttings as well as the existence of the lateral struttings attached to seat. - It is important to mention here that this model produced by THONET firm is attributed to Hoffmann's pupil OTTO PRUTSCHER by some authors, although the doubtless proof by documents is still missing.
