We are delighted to have on offer such a rare example of early modernist design. Bristol based furniture company PE Gane Ltd was inspired by a visit from leading modernist proponent Marcel Breuer in the early 1930's and turned its focus from the arts and crafts movement to producing inspired modernist and Deco furniture.
The chair is constructed using the most fantastic cut of 'Tigers' oak, the steam bent curved arch arms finish the chair off beautifully. The back has a deep curve which is incredibly comfortable, and places you in a natural lounge position. It also still retains its original material which considering its age is fairly good, mainly just some wear around the edges and some stains which are to be expected for its age. These chairs are also a fairly simple up-holstery job as its just the center which requires material.
All in all a great looking piece of British modernist design which is ready to be used and displayed in your home or re-upholstered.
