Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
Pair of Barcelona Ottomans, Gerald R. Griffith, Chicago, USA
chrome-plated steel, leather
H 12 x W 21 1/2 x D 23 1/4 inches
Property from a Private Collection, Highland Park, Illinois
Overall very good, attractive condition. The frames present quite well, free of any misshaping, losses to finish, or oxidation, showing only scattered fine surface scratched associated with age and use. The leather slings on each example appear to be original and are in very good condition, showing some scattered light surface ware associated with age, one of the slings does not retain its leather lacing for the underside, and would need to be replaced prior to use.
These examples were made by Gerald R. Griffith in Chicago under the supervision of Mies van der Rohe. You can see the precise corners, sharper edges with this design in the additional images.
