6 chairs that are replicas of the Cesca armchair in cane and designed by Marcel Breuer. They are currently selling at DWR for $1,350-1,500, new, if produced by Knoll. These are copies in first class condition and cost 500 each in their original state about 12 years ago. Now they are worth half of that, although given the increase in the cost of the original chair made by Knoll, they are worth at least half of the $500. $150 each or best offer. Great looking chairs, super comfortable.
Details on the Cesca Chairs (note these are high end replicas in incredible condition but not the actual Cesca chairs but the specifications are the same);
Marcel Breuer conceived the first tubular steel chair, in 1925, based on the tubed frame of a bicycle. His revolutionary Cesca chair, named after his daughter Francesca, marries user-friendly caning and hardwood Beech with the industrial-age aesthetic of cantilevered tubular steel. Functional, simple and distinctly modern. Knoll is the only authorized and licensed manufacturer of the Cesca chair. Marcel Breuer’s signature and Knoll studio logo are stamped into the base of each chair to verify authenticity.
Protégé of Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer embodied many of the School’s distinctive concepts and was and one of the School’s most famous students. He returned to teach carpentry from 1925-1928, during which he designed the tubular-steel furniture collection. His attention drifted towards architecture, and after practicing privately, he worked as a professor at Harvard’s School of Design under Gropius. Breuer was also honored as the first architect to be the sole artist of an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
