I just stopped by a consignment shop and picked up a $9 chair. The chair caught my eye because of its Bentwood form and older hardware. Inspecting the bottom I found a Kohn and Mundus tag with a 1910 date on it. I am sure it is a Michael Thonet Bentwood chair but I can not find this exact chair anywhere. I am planning on giving it a light rub down with steel wool and a light coat of oil then displaying it in my office. Any help in locating the exact identity of this chair or it’s value would be helpful. I’m sure that my $9 was well spent.

Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
