Set of Six Early Model Bronze Patio Dining Chairs by Walter Lamb
By Brown Jordan
A set of six dining chairs by Walter Lamb dating from the late 40s or early 50s, either predating, or from the early years of his work with Brown Jordan. The chairs have a frame in tubular bronze with the verdigris patina characteristic to his work. The chair sits on two runners, with a perpendicular cross-support connecting them at the center. The backrest is slightly curved and angled, and the seat and back are formed by woven sail cord, a braided cotton with a nylon core to prevent stretching.
Condition: Good vintage condition. The chairs have been professionally cleaned and the bronze has a blue-green verdigris patina. The rope seat and back rests have been replaced according to the original design.
Dimensions: The armchair is 21.5” wide by 20” deep and 33” tall, with an arm height of 25.5”. The side chair is 19” wide by 20” deep and 33” tall. Both models have a seat height of 18”.
