I do not know very much about this pub-style chair. I believe it to be older than the J&J Kohn chair that I posted about previously - possibly mid to late 1800's. I purchased this chair at auction - very cheap. It has it's original "embossed" seat although there is crack/hole in it - I have not repaired it. The top of the back has also lost wood - probably due to being leaned back against a wall while someone sat in it. Believe I did clean up the finish on it. There is also an original label on the underside of the seat. Would love to find more information about the factory/maker and possible value of the chair if any. THANKS
What I found on the internet -
The small bug (bow) wood furniture industry Josef Jaworek was the only Polish member of distribution organization Mundus, Vienna by their foundation in 1907. Mundus merged with J&J Kohn, Vienna in August, 1914.
Teschen was a city in the crownland Österreichisch Schlesien (Austrian Silesia) of the Austrian Empire.
As a result of WW 1, the city was divided along its river Olsa. The right side of the river became Polish. Today, it has the name Cieszyn. The left side of the river became part of Czechoslovakia (today: Czech Republic), and has the name Cesky´ Tesín.
