Auction Watch # 25 – Selig Z Chair?

Another week, another interesting item of furniture from Melbourne.

Possible rosewood 1960's chair
Front on!
Mid Century Modern
6 pieces!

20th Century Salvation

It appears to be a version of the Selig Z chair, however in lounge suite form! We’re told it’s rosewood (kind of hard to tell from the photos, but you can catch a glimpse of it in one image) and that it was brought by a Chinese family from the Chinese Consulate in Melbourne in 1971 which to me would date it from the 1960’s. The original cushions were apparently filled with horse hair.

So we have –

  • Solid rosewood timber
  • Selig Z chair style/inspiration
  • Originating from the Chinese Consulate
  • Circa 1960’s
  • Price – no bids starting at $200

It’s a shame I’m 700km’s away otherwise this auction watch post might of come after the fact…..

To find, search eBay for – SIX 1960’s Rosewood Chairs.

Goodluck!
