Seller: englishfabric (1,105) 100%, Location: Hillside, New Jersey, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 162219346867 I AM PLEASED TO OFFER LOVELY DESIGNER FABRICS AT EQUALLY LOVELY PRICES. ALL FABRICS, UNLESS STATED, ARE FIRST QUALITY AND WILL AS ONE CONTINUOUS PIECE. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE FABRIC. HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLAIN BEIGE PIECE OF CLOTH, LOOK ELSEWHERE. THIS IS THE PLACE FOR EXCITING TEXTILES. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION ARE A PAIR OF CHAIRS COVERED IN FORTUNY 'CORONE' FABRIC. THESE ARE VINTAGE PIECES AND I WOULD GUESS THEY ARE FROM THE 1930s TO 1950s. ONE IS A 'GENTLEMEN'S' CHAIR WHICH IS SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN THE COMPANION 'LADIES' CHAIR. TO MAKE A CHAIR OF SLIGHTLY LARGER SIZE FOR THE GENTLEMAN IN THE FAMILY WAS THE FASHION DURING THE TIME PERIOD. THE STYLES ARE EXACTLY THE SAME, THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS SCALE. THE CHAIRS ARE STRUCTURALLY VERY SOUND AND EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE. THE SECOND PHOTO SHOWS THE GENTLEMEN'S CHAIR. THE THIRD PHOTO SHOWS THE LADIES CHAIR. THEY ARE FULLY UPHOLSTERED TUB CHAIRS. ALL THE TUFTING AND BUTTONS ARE INTACT. THE FOURTH PHOTOS SHOWS A GREAT DETAIL- THE SKIRT IS BANDED WITH THE BORDER OF THE FORTUNY FABRIC - THE FORTUNY 'R'. THE FIFTH PHOTO SHOW THE BACK OF THE CHAIR WHICH HAS A LOVELY TAPER. THE SIXTH PHOTO SHOWS ANOTHER DETAIL- THE CORDING AROUND THE CUSHIONS AND THE BACK OF THE CHAIR IS NOT A SELF WELT, BUT A CORD IN COORDINATING COLORS OF WARM PEACH AND A SLIGHT THREAD OF THE PLATINUM COLOR WHICH IS ALMOST IMPERCEPTIBLE, BUT A GREAT DESIGNER DETAIL. THE CORONE FABRIC WAS PLACED JUST SO BY THE UPHOLSTERER- NONE OF THE 'CROWN' OF THE PATTERN IS USED. PERHAPS THE CLIENT REQUESTED THIS TO SUBDUE THE REGAL QUALITY OF THE FABRIC PATTERN AND MAKE IT A BIT MORE APPROACHABLE. CHAIRS OF THIS AGE ARE NEVER WITHOUT ISSUE AND I WILL TRY TO DETAIL THEM HERE. I MENTION THESE ISSUES IN THE SPIRIT OF FULL DISCLOSURE, BUT THE CHAIRS ARE LOVELY AS IS AND WOULD COST AN ABSOLUTE FORTUNE TO RECREATE TODAY. VINTAGE FORTUNY FABRIC IS A TREASURE. ADD TO THAT THE HIGH QUALITY OF THESE CHAIRS AND THIS IS A RARE FIND INDEED. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE FIRST PHOTO, FROM A DISTANCE OF A FEW FEET AWAY THE CHAIRS ARE BREATHTAKING. THE SEVENTH PHOTO SHOWS WHERE THERE IS 'BLEED' TO THE COLORS ON THE CUSHION. PERHAPS THEY RECEIVED TOO AGGRESSIVE A CLEANING AT SOME POINT? THE EIGHTH PHOTO SHOWS THE FABRIC IS A BIT THIN AND SLIGHTLY FRAYED IN A COUPLE AREAS. IT IS, AFTER ALL, A COTTON. THE NINTH PHOTO SHOWS THE LEFT ARM OF THE LADIES CHAIR WHICH SHOWS DISCOLORATION AND WEAR. THE TENTH PHOTO SHOWS A SMALL HOLE ON THE BACK EDGE OF THE LADIES CHAIR. THE ELEVENTH PHOTO SHOWS THAT THE FABRIC IS FADED IN AREAS WHERE IT HAS SEEN SUN. THE PARTS THAT DID NOT SEE SUN SUCH AS THE FABRIC BETWEEN THE PLEATS SHOWS THAT THIS FABRIC HAD A SLIGHT METALLIC QUALITY WHICH HAS FADED. THE TWELFTH PHOTO SHOWS THE SKIRT HAS PLEATS WHICH 'COME AWAY' FROM THE BUTTONS. THE BUTTONS ARE STILL THERE AND I SUSPECT AN UPHOLSTERER OR A RELATIVELY HANDY PERSON CAN FIND A WAY TO AFFIX THE FABRIC TO STAY BEHIND THE BUTTON TO MAKE THE PLEAT LAY BETTER. THESE CHAIRS ARE AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL PICK UP ONLY. I WILL MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLE TO WORK WITH THE BUYER OR A DELIVERY SERVICE OF THE BUYERS CHOOSING. THE BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ARRANGEMENTS AND COSTS. THE GENTLEMAN'S CHAIR MEASURES 34 INCHES HIGH AND 36 INCHES WIDE AT THE WIDEST POINT. THE LADIES CHAIR MEASURES 32 INCHES HIGH AND 34 INCHES WIDE. NO INTERNATIONAL BIDS!! PAYMENT BY PAYPAL. FABRICS WILL ARRIVE FOLDED AND WILL REQUIRE PRESSING. Condition: Used, Condition: Chairs are from the 1930s to 1950s. Structurally very sound. Fading to fabric and wear commensurate with age. No odors or major issues. Just lovely vintage goodness.
