No*10 Rocking Chair Michael Thonet
A vintage No.10 bentwood and cane rocking chair in black lacquer by Thonet, Austria.
The Model No.10 rocking Chair was designed by Michael Thonet circa 1860 - 1890, this example dates from circa 1900. The chair features a generously sized handwoven cane seat and high back which provides comfort and gives lightness to the design.
The most eye-catching detail is the elaborately curling shapes in the base of the rocker.
The bumps and knocks commensurate with age have given the chair incredible character.
However, what is perhaps most fabulous about this piece is that even at 120+ years old it is still robust and comfortable enough to use everyday.
