VintageRes…
(1 item)

Just acquired 3 of these recently. They were brought over from Hamburg, Germany by the previous owner who purchased them at a flea market there several years ago. All ironwork is hand forged only "modern" item I can find are 2 very old screws (NOT phillips), on the footrests.

I was told they came from an old castle in Germany, and orginally thought they were German-style chairs until I started doing some research. I am now assuming - pretty much - that they are antique/vintage Chinese Royal Folding Chairs. Not sure - need help on that.

They are truly beautiful chairs.

Can ANYONE tell me ANYTHING about the chairs including possible value. I can't seem to get any answers anywhere.

Thanks!
