Leinfelder Seat

Item #05358

A wrought-iron seat with repeating arc motif on the back and basketweave seat, by Joseph J. Leinfelder & Sons, Lacrosse, WI, ca. 1935.  33.5 ins. high, 45 ins. wide, seat depth 15 ins., seat height 16 ins.

This particular pattern appears in the Leinfelder catalogues of 1935 and 1936.  The 1936 catalogue describes the design: “Slim arcs of wire are decoratively reinforced at the center to make [seat] backs and table-top of this smart ensemble”.

In the last photo shown with 05361, a pair of wrought-iron chairs with simple, modern Neoclassical swag motif on the back, with basket weave seat, possibly by the Joseph J. Leinfelder firm of Lacrosse, WI, American, ca. 1940. 33 ins. high, 20.25 ins. overall width, 21 ins. overall depth".

Barbara says, "This company created some of the most lovely, lyrical garden seats—wrought-iron production in the 20s and 30s in America was at its peak—I particularly love the woven seats that the Leinfelders made.
