1,030 h x 720 w x 930 d mm
430 seat h mm
The ultimate Mid-century designer wingback, (well the original is).
As close to the real thing without remortgaging your house. Imported from Denmark by the last owner, this is a copy from the mid century period, (as there were many).
This chair has great style, genuine and old. Teak timber frame, with show-wood arms. A classic shape, this chair has it all; diamond button back, with two great long arms and you can get yourself relaxed, cocooned between the high wing back.
This is a replica/ copy of Hans Wegner Papa bear chair.
Probably rare due to being an imported mid-century copy.
Overall condition is consistent with age. However this chair has had part restoration. With the teak legs restored, re-jointed and also the teak on the armrests. The chair has also been re-webbed with extra padding added, the cushion has also been re-filled with new foam and padding.
The upholstery is a mixed grey/ black/ white weave, it is in good overall condition, however has some wear and discolouration in areas, (top back rest/ rear back and arm rests). see multi image. I believe this upholstery was added in the 1970s. While working on this chair, I saw pieces of the original 1950s fabric underneath. It was brown.
All defects have been photographed. There are the usual wear and tear as expected. However as you can see this item presents very well. Viewing welcomed.
Item has been priced accordingly.
