Rocker 1 (Michael Thonet)

I walked into the Consignment store the other day and saw a Thonet Rocker on the shelf. Upon further inspection it was a remake from the 80’s and not worth as much as the chairs I collect.  I love the curves and lines in a Thonet chair.  The original chair was by far the most beautiful when Michael Thonet was interested more in form than in mass production.  As the production increased the curves became more and more simple.  For a company to produce this masterpiece on the scale they were turning out his chair #14 would not have been price effective.
