Its malleable anatomy naturally yields to each person’s posture. Troll Seating collection is a veritable flock of creature comforts.

This is a rare set of salesman sample furniture made by Thonet, the master of bentwood furniture creator of the iconic bentwood chairs that altered the direction of furniture design. We estimate the manufacture date to be in the late 1860s. This four piece set is comprised of love seat, chair, rocking chair and table. The maker’s original paper label stating Thonet, Wien (Vienna) Austria, is still affixed to the underside of the table. The bentwood is in very good condition, retaining its original finish with beautiful patina. The wicker is destroyed on all but the rocker, upon which it is in excellent condition. The label is proof positive that Thonet manufactured this remarkable set. It truly is an exceptional and rare find. We offer it in original as found condition. This set is featured, but unattributed, on page 30 and 31 of the publication Bentwood and Metal Furniture. Our set is attributed as it retains the makers label. Thonet Bent solid beechwood, Cane Doll
