Pair of Early Cantilever Chairs


From around 1930, Angelo Luigi Colombo's factory in Milan, Italy produced a version of the famous Mart Stam cantilever chair under license from Thonet. The Colombo company has a fascinating and varied output, best known for being the world's premier manufacturer of lightweight steel "Columbus" tubing for the frames of racing bicycles, and in the 1940s / 1950s, building the intricate steel-tube chassis frames used in the classic Ferrari and Maserati racing and sports cars of that golden era.

These two chairs are unrestored and bear a marvelous patina of age. The pair is priced at $3300.
