Seller: m_chynoweth (1,513) 98.7%, Location: Crolles, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 183653822415 We are pleased to offer this beautiful hand carved spinning chalet chair. We discovered it in the French Alps in the chartreuse mountains mean, but I have seen similar chairs it in both Switzerland and Austria and in Germany as well. This one is unique in that it is a mix between the traditional Tyrollean chair and a chair used for a spinning wheel seat traditionally has a very narrow back. It has a split seat which is quite comfortable. The chair back comes off and it turns into a stool as well. The chair is signed ”COZON” which is both a region in the Chartreuse mountains and a family name. In the wintertime many of the Alpine people used to spend their time indoors doing woodworking making clock boxes and chairs and other wonderfully beautiful products. I do not know the original age of this chair, It is good and stable and solid. It is in very usable condition. As you can see the back was removed for some photos and so that you can see what it looks like as a stool. This pin style chair is very very popular in the Alps. With the wooden pin removed back of the chair could be removed This made it much easier to store these chairs by stacking them without their backs. This is what made them very popular and taverns and pubs throughout the Alps. The style of this chair is quite unique actually it is more reflective of Dutch or Swedish Scandinavian origins. Probably the artist was influenced by something he saw from traveling up north. The style of the legs is very Tyrollean, this is just how they make their pub chairs very practical and very sturdy. The chair can be used as a chair or stool without the back. I don’t see any damage to the wood anywhere but it may need some light oiling when it arrives. Only one of the pins is still original and it is in the back. I will include some wisteria branch pins for the other three peg places. I am pretty sure this will need to be shipped into separate boxes because of the length of the back. Dimensions 37” tall seat 15” wide 12” deep Seat is 15” high
