THONET MODEL No 10 ROCKING CHAIR, Circa 1880.
An outstanding example of a design classic, the ebonised light but strong wood curved by hot steam and stamped 'THONET' to base.

This example has the original cane seat and backrest and also appears in the 1904 Thonet catalogue.

German / Austrian, early 20th century.
The design for this appealing bentwood chair goes back to the company's founder Michael Thonet and his sons. In 1860, in the Moravian town of Koritschan, the Rocking Chair No. 1 was first manufactured using the new bentwood technique that is still being used today. The wood is heated with water vapour and then bent into the desired shape, which gives this rocking chair its particular charm. Michael Thonet developed the technique of bending solid beechwood in 1856.
