SOLD George Nakashima Sundra for Widdicomb Set of 4 Chairs Rare Walnut, Authentic
Listed for sale is an authentic set of four black walnut chairs by George Nakashima. The chairs were crafted by Widdicomb furniture in Grand Rapids, MI. They are rare and exceptional examples of George Nakashima's earliest work. Soon after Nakashima came to Pennsylvania, he began building his studio. At this time, he also produced designs for Widdicomb and and created the Sundra series, which used both solid hardwoods and exotic burl veneers in an effort to produce stunning quality pieces.
This set was purchased in the early 1950's and was used by the same family until now. It accompanied an entire dining room set, which you can inquire about if desired.
These chairs show no signs of damage and show signs of age, but not damage. The patina is rich and lovely.
Much like the conoid chairs, these are made from black walnut with hickory spindles. As you may note, these chairs are prototypes in a sense for the conoid chairs.
The chairs are signed George Nakashima and Sundra is hand written on the undersides.
