These are such a pair of sassy little chairs! American made Mid-Century Modern chairs that were inspired by the Danish Modern designs of the era. Circa 1960s and from the Birchcraft Collection by Baumritter Corporation. Comprised of solid wood construction and featuring a curvaceous winged back with tapered round legs. Very simple and very stunning. This pair still has its original red orange and rust striped velvet fabric which is in fabulous condition.
Baumritter was founded by Theodore Baumritter and his brother-in-law, Nathan C. Ancell, in New York in 1932 as Baumritter and Co. In 1939 they introduced an “Early American” furniture line, Ethan Allen, which subsequently became the company name in 1972. During the 1950s and 1960s Baumritter produced at least two lines of modern furnishings. One being Birchcraft and the other Viko.
These chairs are an imposing example of the Mid-Century Modern movement from a company we all relate to for their Early American stylings. You should own these perfect sassy little chairs. Make them yours!
