MCM Iron & Wood Dining Chairs Attributed to Clifford Pascoe for Modernmasters Set 4
WOW!!!… now THIS is superior seating!!! These dining chairs are comprised of black wrought iron solid rod frames and feature natural or blonde sculptural molded plywood backrests with angled ends, and a sultry merlot colored vinyl or faux leather upholstered seats. We think these may have been recovered at some point, either way, they are absolutely gorgeous, and the color is phenomenal! There is a good amount of lovely, aged patina all over the chairs which we feel makes them even more attractive. This chair design by Pascoe was allegedly included in the 1952 Museum of ModernArt Good Design show, we have researched this but have found nothing definitive enough to confirm that. AND… this chair design is often mistaken for the Paul McCobb design as they are remarkably similar, but these are attributed to Clifford Pascoe. They will look striking surrounding your mid-century modern dining table but really, they are the perfect “go anywhere” type of chair. Perfect at a breakfast nook or game table but versatile enough to use in any room or as extra seating if unexpected company shows up.
Clifford Pascoe was affiliated with Alvar Alto in the early 1940’s, and their company Artek-Pascoe produced such classic furniture designs as the Alto bentwood stacking stool; a young Charles Eames worked for Artek during WWII designing splints out of molded plywood. Pascoe also designed for Modernmasters and in 1951 he designed this chair. Through the mid-century he continued to design fantastic chairs, tables, desks, and storage units.
Don’t let this awesome set of Charles Pascoe design chairs pass you by… just make them yours!!
Outstanding set of 4 mid-century modern iron & wood dining chairs attributed to Clifford Pascoe for Modernmasters. Comprised of natural molded plywood seatbacks, solid black wrought iron rod frames, and deep burgundy or merlot colored vinyl seats. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that these are vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. We think these chairs may have been reupholstered and there are several chiggers or aged patina marks throughout the wood and on the black iron frames. We love the natural age patina it gives so have done nothing but clean these chairs and put a bit of Danish Oil on the backs. Also note that due to the inherent beauty of individual construction of these chairs there are some slight height and angle differences in the hand wrought frames. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1950’s.
