uploading 1953 Irving Sabo String Dining Chairs for J.G. Johnson Furniture Company
United States
1953
A very rare set of six String Chairs by Irving Szabo from the J.G. Johnson Company. The chairs were bought in 1953 and have been in one ownership since that time. This is the first time they have come to market. The chairs are document in George Nelson's book "Chairs" on page 81. Although Nelson misspells Szabo's name. The set comes from the Astute art collector and longtime supporter of human rights, Sally Lilienthal is perhaps best known for her founding of the Ploughshares Fund, the anti-nuclear organization that she founded in her living room in 1981. The interactive Ploughshares work often took place in her home on Vallejo Street in San Francisco-- a contemporary, art-filled space which blended form and function and was a showcase for her art and work. Strangers and friends could be found sprawled out on the floor of Sally's living room, writing letters to world leaders, surrounded by works of the highest quality. Sally's ability to collect works that would stand the test of time is exemplified by this selection of key works from her estate, which will be offered to further benefit her causes.
