eBay watch: A pair of midcentury sling chairs by Sergio Rodrigues

Serg

We have featured a number of reissues of the work of Sergio Rodrigues, most of them, like the Kilin chair, the Oscar chair and the Mole chair all being far from cheap. Which makes this pair of midcentury chairs by Sergio Rodrigues (if they are by him) a potential bargain.


Just like the seller, we don't know the specific name of the seats on offer here – and believe me, I've scoured the web for a copy. The seller says 1950s and that might well be the case, possibly sneaking into the 1960s. Either way, it's said to be the real deal, with the 'Made in Brazil' signature on the wood.

Aside from that, there is leather for the sling back and seat mixing it with the wooden frame. Condition is said to be 'good vintage' although the wood is also said to be able to 'use a good oil treatment'.

If in doubt about the authenticity, check with the seller for more details. If you fancy a punt, the price for the is $300 or £188.15.
