Thonet – Rare Salesman Sample Set

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.

S35 by Breuer for Thonet

S35 by Marcel Breuer

This comfortable club chair was presented in 1930 at the Paris Grand Palais as a contribution by the Deutscher Werkbund. Together with Walter Gropius and Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer organized this premiere of contemporary German furniture production in France. With the S 35 he succeeded in integrating all of the functions of a tubular steel cantilever chair with the construction of a single uninterrupted line. The cantilever effect was thus doubled because the armrests, which flex independently from the seat, balance the swinging of the seat and backrest frame that projects towards the back. A matching footstool is available.
Frames chrome-plated tubular steel. Seat, backrest and footstool stretched with black full-grain butt leather or brown buffalo hide. Armrests in stained beech or oiled walnut.
