It's Sunday Morning......I JUST DECIDED TO PUT THESE CHAIRS ON SALE FOR A SUPER SUMMER PRICE OF $1200.00 for the set of 10. Check 1stdibs.com and rubylane.com for comparison pricing.
I'm stuck somewhere in between my passion for fine antique furniture and fine, even funky, mid-century pieces. I think that if the lines are classic and pure, then everything should be mixable creating positive energy. These 19th c. Hitchcock Chairs could be a challenge to that theory--but just take a quick minute to envision a mid-century table--Danish or similar surrounded by a set of these black Americana chairs......
I bought these chairs (and we all know about my chair addiction and my vow of "no more chairs")...oh well, I couldn't help myself. These guys came to the block a couple of weeks ago, and without even previewing them, up went my hand and they were mine. Hitchcock chairs are not a West Coast chair, and especially not an LA chair form; so I stole them.
I bought an assembled set of 12 chairs (one was lost at the auction house before I picked them up--oh well, now I have a set of 10 plus one to take home).
Once I had picked them up and studied the chairs, I realized that these were pretty decent chairs. There was a set of 4 (2 arms + 2 sides) in great original condition:
Not too shabby! These will go to 1stdibs as a set of 4 plus 3 pairs of associated chairs for a set totaling 10 chairs--large chair sets are always a plus and hard to find (just wish I had that 12th chair).
Hitchcock chairs are a staple of Americana decoration--to find this many in good to excellent condition is a challenge.
Jones is getting his hair cut on Wednesday--boy is he shaggy, but still saucy.
Wishing the best of summer Sundays to all.
