Early Model Walter Lamb Patio Rocking Chair
By Brown Jordan
A late 1940s or early 1950s Walter Lamb rocking chair predating or from the early days of his partnership with Brown Jordan. The chair has a frame in tubular bronze with the verdigris patina that distinguishes his designs. Two runners with bowed rear edges form the rocking frame, which terminates at bronze finials on either side of the backrest, characteristic of his early designs. The strung seat and backrest are formed by tightly woven sailcord, made of braided cotton with a nylon core to prevent stretching.
Condition: Excellent vintage condition; bronze carries an age-appropriate patina, sail cord has been replaced according to original specifications.
Dimensions: 21" width x 32" depth x 31" height; seat height is 16.5" and arm height is 24"
All Walter Lamb patio furniture at DEN has been restored with the utmost attention to the designer’s original specifications. We rope all seating with a polished cotton sail cord that closely approximates what would have been offered by Brown Jordan when the line was originally retailed. While the cord will retain its shape and strength in most US climate zones, please expect to see some changes in color and texture over time due to weathering and natural accumulation of particulate matter. To maintain showroom condition, we advise covering your furniture when not in use, and especially during extreme conditions. Seating can be re-roped in a synthetic cord more resistant to discoloration; we strongly recommend this option for humid climates.
