20TH CENTURY ANTIQUE ARTS & CRAFTS TIGER OAK MILWAUKEE CHAIR COMPANY SWIVEL OFFICE / DESK CHAIR
Thank you for shopping with Bay Colony Antiques. We're a third generation family owned business furnishing homes all over the world. We aggressively pursue important antiques, decorative arts, and objects of interest for our most discerning clients.
Bay Colony Antiques is pleased to offer for sale this great antique early 20th century Arts & Crafts / Mission Oak desk chair. The chair is signed Milwaukee Chair CO 1914 on the metal mechanism and has a Milwaukee Chair Company decal on the back of the seat. The company was founded in 1889 and quickly became one of the biggest employers and producers of furniture in the area. The original factory was destroyed in the 1899 fire but like a phoenix from the ashes they rose again. The company continued to produce furniture until they eventually closed their doors in the mid 20th century. A few years ago we would always have a good half dozen or so of these chairs in stock but ever since the pandemic began we've been having trouble keeping up with the demand. We've been steadily replacing the ones that sell but it seems that they go as fast as we can list them. We use these daily in our office and prefer them over modern desk chairs. The chair has a comfortable shaped saddle seat and is in wonderful condition. The chair measures 23 1/2” wide arm to arm x 19" deep x 34" tall with a seat height of 20".
