Round Chair, Model JH 503 (1960s)
Made by Johannes Hansen
This is a Round Chair, Model JH 503, designed by Hans Wegner for Johannes Hansen in 1949. This example was manufactured in Denmark in the 1960s. It has a teak frame with clearly defined finger joints, and has a seat upholstered in black leather. The chair retains remnants of a Knoll / Johannes Hansen label, and the frame is also stamped.
The chair measures 20 inches deep, 25 inches wide and 30 inches high. It has a seat height of 18 inches and an arm height of 27.25 inches. This piece has previously been professionally repaired and refinished, and is in very good condition. It appears as though the back once had some issues at the joints, though that was very nicely and professionally repaired. Please see photos.
