For Sale: Pair of Original Vintage Bentwood Bistro chairs ?200

2 chairs, made in Poland, with the Latin motto "Semper Sursum" meaning "always aim high" printed on a label underneath.

The makers J & J Kohn were a leading Austrian manufacturer of furniture in Austria - Hungary. The company was founded in 1849 by Jacob and his son Josef.


Both seats have a wonderfully imbedded and incised design. The chairs are strong and balanced, no wobble or breaks. The screws are original and are tight and in perfect condition.

Excellent condition.

?200 for the pair

Collection in East Dulwich

Having being given the chairs by my grandmother who has sadly passed away, we have had them in our family for almost 100 years - the price is what the experts have estimated & I for one am not going to question their expertise.

Thanks for your interest

Still for sale;

For Roseigracex the expert:

Email from Thonet attached below, 300 Euros for a single chair :

Your chair has got the No. 118 and was produced from 1922 until 1935. The "Design" of the seat is especially beautiful and is only to be found on this model. The estimated collector's value is about 300?.

Best regards,

Anke-Maria Thonet

    • One could naively think that setting up a meeting with invited locals to discuss issues arising from the recent Gala is the correct approach and we should commend the organisers for being so proactive. Sometimes you need to think about what should happen and see how far apart they are. To have a proper review, with full intention to follow up on any lessons learned, there should be a full fact find. This should be accessible to ALL residents (not just those invited) and should embrace other methods than one in-person session (they could send out a survey via Southwark website, or local social media). The council should be involved as well. There should be a compilation of the main issues raised and importance.  Follow up should be based on addressing each point. The council should be involved. There should be accountability and a clear way forward, as agreed by all. So - the gap between what has been set up as a one day by invite meeting, is far, far away from what it should be, if the organisers truly wanted to listen and make improvements. Perhaps a clue would be that the meeting is set up by the Public Relations team - it's just a tick box. to be seen to be doing the right thing.
