Toon en Martien - Gebr. de Wit, Schiedam - Seating group (2)
Netherlands - 1950-1974 - chrome tube frame, fabric, wood, bakelite

2 very neat De Wit chairs with armrests.
Model 1019.
Looks very comfortable.
Nicely shaped bakelite armrests.
Tubular chrome-plated steel frame is neat; also considering the chair's age.
Manufactured: 1950-1960

Recently reupholstered with black Manchester corduroy fabric, perfect.
The backrest and seat are an upholstered wooden frame. there are springs in the seat.

Unfortunately, both chairs have a problem, as the metal springs produce an undesired sound when sitting down or standing up. On the other hand, that is the only additional thing that needs to be mentioned, because otherwise these are two very neat chairs.

Height: 82
Seat height: 48
Width: 56
Depth: 64
Seat depth: 42

Can be picked up in Drachten, the Netherlands.
After consultation some arrangements could be made in the direction of Drachten > Leiden > The Hage.

(Toon de Wit started his career as a designer at Gispen. But working for a boss gave him no satisfaction. It was a logical step to start his own business with his brother after the war. This is how the Schiedam Factory of Steel Furniture Brothers De Wit nv was born.)
