This is a pair of Victorian style caned bentwood armchairs made by Jacob & Joseph Kohn. They have the labels and the appropriate Kohn stamps. With a pierced crest on an arched top rail, over circular caned backrests, which are set between bobbin turned stiles. The curved armrest supports are topped with a flat piece, and the tapered legs are joined by a hoop stretcher. The Kohn brothers were important Viennese furniture makers from the turn of the 20th Century. Both armchairs have been restored, not refinished, and also recaned. They retain the age appropriate patina and the wicker will turn a golden color with age. They can now be enjoyed for another 150 years.
