Set of 6 Cesca chairs designed in 1928 by the Hungarian-American architect Marcel Breuer. Named Cesca as a tribute to Breuer’s adopted daughter Francesca. The chair consists of a tubular steel frame and a rattan seat and backing. One of the original chairs designed by Breuer is held by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
In super vintage condition with, as you’d expect, some signs of age and use. Some of the chairs are marked ‘Made in Italy’ while others aren’t so they may well be a mixed set. 1970s chairs, some or all of them are likely to have been manufactured by the Italian maker Gavina. The seat base on one chair is lighter than the others but this will be little noticed when the chairs are set around a dining table.
