An attractive pair of quality antique bentwood chairs dating to the Art Nouveau period.

The chairs are bistro style No18 and are made in the Vienna Secessionist style after Thonet.

The wood has a polished finish which has an aged patination.

There is a paper label to the underside of one chair which reads 'Waterproof', unfortunately I do not know the maker.
