About

With a 1984 tag from Brickel Associates, this Ward Bennett chair named The 1550 University carved-wood frame armchair was first designed in 1970 for the LBJ Library at the University of Texas, in Austin.

This one tagged as black ash waxed, has an ebonized finish with the figured grain of the wood showing through. With a carved saddle seat and shaped back. Two metal tags both saying Ward Bennett Designs for Brickel Associates. One red and one black, besides a paper tag from Brickel Associates. In very, very good condition with wear to the finish on the arm edges (see pics). Measurements: 22 1/2 inches wide x 23 inches deep x 33 inches high back. Seat at 18 1/4.
