Pair of Antique Mundus Crocodile Bentwood Bistro Chairs Art Nouveau Thonet Style

A wonderful pair of Art Nouveau 'Crocodile' chairs in exceptional condition. Made by Mundus around 1920, these rare Art Nouveau chairs are in stunning condition and add timeless charm, quality, colour and style to any setting.

The beautiful steam-pressed crocodile print to the backs AND seats make these much sought after examples of these rare bistro chairs. Still retaining their original Mundus stamps and labels to the underside, these were likely made in the 1920s after Thonet amalgamated their Polish factory with Mundus. They feature steam-bent beech wood throughout and have distinctive attractive curved back legs that become broader towards the top. They are joined by the crocodile print back splat that matches the seat, with a circular bentwood seat frame and leg supports and shapely curved front legs. The outstanding condition, superb pattern design and rich chocolate-russet tones with golden swirls make this a very special pair indeed.

These are in very good condition, especially for their age. They are structurally sound and apart from some natural wear to the print on the seats from use and the odd slight knock and mark, as you'd expect with chairs of their age, they're in superb condition and if treated well should last many more decades to come - please see the photos.
