Pair of early Art Deco armchairs in green-teal faux leather, a very supple but durable material which we were told is original. The front legs are turned and carved oak. The chairs are extremely comfortable and very sturdy. Although their origin can not be certified, we purchased them from the daughter of a former caretaker of the Burg-Veldenstein castle, formerly owned by Reich Marshall Hermann Göring. The chairs were originally purchased by the previous owner of the castle Dr. Hermann Von Epenstein whose widow "sold" it to Göring. At the end of the war, the American army searched the castle but found no art treasures and left all furniture intact. Subsequently this caretaker took 5 pieces out of the castle, a couple of which he burned as firewood. The armchairs luckily were left to his daughter, who had them protected by a cloth and who sold them to us.
