Description

Karpen Bros. mahogany Windsor style rocking chair with carved central back splat - has Karpen Bros. name plate attached. FYI.....S. Karpen & Bros. was founded in 1880 by German immigrants Soloman and Oscar Karpen. They were two of seven brothers, and by 1894, the whole family was working at the growing Chicago firm. Starting in 1897, Karpen used metal tags to identify its furniture, but its New York factory didn't open until 1919 and Karpen didn't start making wooden Windsor chairs until the 1920s. The Karpen name and factories were sold in 1952.
