THE 'BARCELONA CHAIR AND STOOL', BY MIES VAN DER ROHE, ITALIAN, with tanned leather cushions, (2), marked 'Made in Italy', no makers label. Excellent quality. Provenance: Purchased in the 1980s from Mike Price, Inside Interiors. Created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for his 1929 German Pavilion at the International Exhibition in Barcelona, the Barcelona Collection's pure composition came to epitomize Modern architecture. From the hand-buffed stainless or chrome frame to the individual leather squares carefully welted together, each Barcelona piece is a tribute to traditional craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail.

Timed Online Auctions:In order to bid you need to register a deVeres account. When registered you can leave bids on multiple lots at any stage up until the closing time, whereby the highest bidder wins the lot. Bidding increments are approx. 10%, e.g

€1,000 - €1,999 by €100, etc
At any point you can leave a maximum bid, representing the highest price you are prepared to pay for a particular lot. Bidding only advances when there is competition from a rival bidder. In that case the system bids on your behalf, only up to the maximum if required. All bids are relayed to you be email, along with notification if you have been outbid.
If a bid is received in the final three minutes of a timed auction the clock resets and it extends the bidding time by a further three minutes, in order to give other bidders an opportunity to respond.
All maximum bids are confidential and not disclosed. We will endeavor to purchase the lot for you for the least price. Bids are subject to buyer’s premium of 25% (incl vat), with no additional charges.
