Nice! You lucky duck!
You can try 1stdib.com. They have a great searchable database, too.
It looks like the one here: http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/fuo/1954859911.htmlThe posting says that chair is similar to a "Hans Wegner wishbone chair style"
Whatever it is, great find!
With that vinyl upholstery, I'll bet this was commercial furniture. In the 60s a lot of waiting-room furniture looked like this. Usually it's extremely sturdy stuff. Beautiful find!
As dwelement mentioned before me, this looks like a commercial take on the Finn Juhl Model No. NV-45, 1945, http://www.1stdibs.com/furniture_item_detail.php?id=327226Nice find!
I bought two chairs for $10 from criagslist that ended up being midcentury office furniture by Paoli. Very similar style. They are my favorite pieces of furniture! Nice find!
Thanks for the feedback everyone - I'm debating having them recovered or keeping the mustard vinyl... these will be in the front room by the fireplace of our '61 atomic ranch.
Wow! Total score! Hang onto those babies...unless you want to make some extra money. I'm sure you could make quite a profit on ebay if you ever decided to go that route. Enjoy your amazing find!
Definitely reupholster them in leather or a nubby textured fabric, like a tweed or boucle -- but don't use a print. IMO, a pattern will argue with the lines of the chair.
You should probably give one to your design consultant.
After looking this chair: I feel comfort from here. You can go forward & proceed for it. If I have this one so, I can use it for both way as an office chairs or guest chairs.
i have some gunlocke chairs that have a very similar base (the way the seat is mounted onto the wood and the rear legs that jut out, as opposed to going straight down)...mine have tiny medallions inlaid into the wood (on the legs i think) that say gunlocke...they are barely noticeable, take a peek...maybe it's a gunlocke
good score! plus it doesn't matter who made them if you love them!
Its a Paoli. I have one just like it with green tweed upholstery. mine is dated 12/22/67. Unfortunately I cant seem to find any more information about it. heres a picture http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash2/hs449.ash2/72240_10150093536706340_637411339_7310267_680952_n.jpg
