One of only 17 known.
Comparing the Chairs of Mittmann and Friedrich
Based on a study of only 17 known Mittmann-made chairs, he seems to
have created one basic design, with minor variations. As an example, one chair might have
22 horns and another might have 24, but the layout of design, placement and spacing of
horns are always recognizably similar. Study how the horns, which make up the back, are
placed and their spacing. Mittmann, like Friedrich, did apply acorn finials to the tips of
some of the horns. Friedrich and Mittmann both used nickel, glass-ball casters on the
legs. But, for some peculiar reason, Mittmann sometimes only placed the casters on the
front two legs, and one known Mittmann chair was made
without any casters. Easily recognized on every known Mittmann chair is the covered horn junction in the upper back, a feature unknown on any
Friedrich or Puppe chair.
