Swan Chair (1970)
Made by Fritz Hansen
This is a Swan chair designed by Arne Jacobsen and produced by Fritz Hansen in 1970. It was acquired directly from the estate of the original owner and was since masterfully reupholstered in full grain cognac leather by one of the nation's leading leather and upholstery craftspeople, who specializes in these pieces. There are only a select number of people on earth who are trained in the swan and egg furnishings as the curvature and hand stitching is quite complex. The chair has not been used in a home or office setting since its new upholstery job. It is ready for a new home and is in gorgeous condition. The base may show some light wear and patina. The leather hide is very high quality and has terrific hand feel. For reference, there is a very faint remnant of the numbers stamped into the hide that can be seen on the left underside of the chair. You can see it very faintly in the images. See photos. The chair retains its original label, noting 7001 marked on the label. This is for the production month and year (January of 1970).
The chair measures 30 inches long by 30 inches tall and 26 inches deep.
