Kohn and Mundus Project


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.
