The Loop Chair Update

Sold as pairs - lots 84 and 85 - circa 1934, each with an estimate of $6000-$8000.

You may see a pair of white ones for sale at Doyle New York attributing them to Frances Elkins. Caveat emptor: they do not have the dipped seat and they are not documented! If you're after the look alone, then the estimate is a friendlier $1200-1800.
UPDATE: Each pair of Elkins Loop chairs sold for $5938 (including buyers premium) at the April 9, 2009 Sotheby's New York sale. A very good buy.
