Spindly Metal-Legged Chairs
by Gustavo Pulitzer Finale.  Manufactured by Thonet/Thonet Industries
.  From MV VICTORIA I

Six available (two with bent legs) in tan upholstery -- not restored
Price:  $250 each

Thonet or Thonet Industries manufactured these particular chairs for Gustavo Pulitzer Finale in 1959.  Their original colors were vivid, most likely to match the colors given to each cabin on the ship's color coded decks:  Ruby, Emerald, Topaz, Sapphire, etc.  At some point, most likely in the Chandris era, they were recovered in a nondescript gray/tan upholstery.



The shape of the seat is exquisite and sculptured.  The spindly metal legs make the perfect, authentic midcentury statement.  These are very solid and sturdy.  Limited supply!
