Marcel Breuer Cantilever Chrome Cane Dining Cesca Chairs Made in Spain, 1970s
These are interesting. Definitely vintage (probably 1970s). The undersides of the seats are marked “Made in Spain”, but both of the armchairs have a sticker on the chrome tubes under the arms that says “Made in Canada”. Below are a few noteworthy observations.
- Curved contour on the backs is on the bottom, not the top like you would typically see on a traditional Cesca chair. - Arm-less chairs mimic the bent tube frame design on the back supports that you typically only see on the arm chairs. — The armrests do not taper down at the pipe bend — Tube caps are chrome metal (not plastic) Marcel Breuer’s “Cesca” chair is said to be the most reproduced chair design in history. This popularity is a testament to the timelessness of Breuer’s groundbreaking design. Here we have a vintage set of chairs consisting of two arms and four arm-less. The tubular bent chrome is the perfect complement to the tan cane and black trim. These cantilever style armchairs have far more style and detail than can be appreciated in these photos. The restoration: Each chair was disassembled so that the entire chrome frame could be hand polished. Each seat, backrest and armrest has been carefully repainted (spray-coated) in black paint and finished in semi-gloss to match the original sheen. The cane has been cleaned and detailed.
