Pillips de Pury refers by way of provenance to an auction of Christie’s on 29 October 1997 in London, King Street, where this chair fetched $4,615, just before the big increase of auction results for early 20ieth century furniture. Again interesting to see the result of this chair….

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I don’t think I have ever seen any Hans Vollmer furniture before. His work is right up my alley and, if available, something I would use in a project.
