This beautiful bentwood bistro chair was made in Austria in the early 1900's by Fischel. This has been well looked after and is in great condition. This comes with a decorative pressed wooden seat and still has the original paper label attached and "Fischel Austria" stamped on the rail underneath. Measuring approx 86.5x36.5x46cm at the widest points.
David Fischel founded DG Fischel & Son in Neimes, Czechoslovakia making bentwood furniture when the original patent registered by Michael Thonet expired in 1871. His son has actually worked for Thonet and by 1913 the company had expanded to work in Vienna too. Their chairs were mostly used in bars and cafes.
