Zweites Kundenfauteuil

"Zweites Kundenfauteuil" Vienna/ Brussels 1991 - 1998 with certificate

A used 'fauteuil' that I bought in Vienna for 0,70 Euro (70 cents), because I needed something to sit on in my little studio in Favoriten. Some years later, when wine-selling got a bit more important to me, I needed something comfortable for my wine clients to sit on in my almost empty house in Brussels, so i took this fauteuil (its a kind of early socialist design from the thirties of 20th century, to help working and poorer classes to live more comfortably), chose a 'nice' covering and had it recovered/ renovated, payed for it from the wine-gains, and deducted it from the income-taxes.
