Description

    ROBERT JOSTEN (American, 20th century)
    Bar Stool (set of four), circa 1970
    Cast aluminum, steel, maple
    47-1/4 x 19 x 17 inches (120.0 x 48.3 x 43.2 cm)



    Condition Report*:

    The abrasions and scratches apparent are consistent with age and use. There are only a handful of deep scratches, the most visible is on the back of one barstool chair where there is a pair of deep abrasions approximately ½ inches long each. There are a series of light scratches throughout all commensurate with age and use. There is rubbing and color shift to the finish on the crossbars where it was handled in moving back and forth.   Please note, one of the barstools is slightly lower than the 3 others, by approximately an inch. By examining the construction, where we observe that some of the barrel joints are slightly smaller, it's possible this piece may even be a prototype. There is some pigment marks to one of the seats, otherwise with surface wear commensurate with age.
