1950’s Fischel Slim Back Bentwood Dining Chairs – Set Of Eight


1950’s Fischel Slim Back Bentwood Dining Chairs – Set Of Eight. The process of steam bending beech to create elegant chairs was discovered and developed by Thonet, but when its patents expired in 1869 many companies including Fischel launched production. Fischel was founded in 1871 by Czech born David Gabriel Fischel, a successful vegetable oil merchant, using the first hand knowledge of his eldest son who had worked in one of Thonets Czech factories. First production was made in Germany in Niemes near the Danube. Later production moved to France in Alsace and sales offices were opened in most major French cities as Fischel became a major chair producer. These chairs date from the 1950’s, a very elegant slim back shape with a rich colour and character. The chairs are not labelled Fischel but we have seen enough examples by Fischel to be pretty confident they were the maker. We service and wax each chair before it leaves our workshop and we deliver chairs of excellent quality. Seat Height 48cm.
