Welcome to our listing for this rare set of. 5x mid century danish / scandi style elbow chairs circa 1950/60's with leather upholstery on solid walnut frames. The previous owner seems to think these were made / designed by Finn Juhl but we have no proof of this nor do the chairs have any markings or badges etc. This is a very good quality set of chairs of their time but we are unsure of the exact maker / age / origin etc. They are very well made chairs.Possibly ex MoD or military / RAF etc. Each chair is very sturdy and very heavy hence why the designer added the rear hand grips to make them easier to move.
They appear to be made from solid wood which i think is walnut but i could be sure, it may be teak or something similar. The leather upholstery is real leather but is in poor condition as shown.
The wooden frames are sturdy and these are heavy chairs so were definitely made to last. Whether they are originally conference / diplomat type office chairs, or executive dining chairs etc i cant say but they would suit any application. The seats are fully sprung with wadding in amoungst each spring making the even more comfortable and quiet. The craftsmanship of these chairs truly is amazing and are bound to be either designer or branded at worst.In my opinion thehy are high grade and have a very good maker, i just dont know which. All done up this would make a very expensive set of chairs so there is the potential for massive profits.
97cm high x 61cm wide x 62cm front to back, with a seat height of approx. 50cm, seat width of 49cm and seat depth of 48cm. This is a pre-loved vintage set of chairs so it shows general signs of use and age with plenty wear and tear in places as shown.
The frames are strong and sturdy with just general marking as you would expect, the leasther upholstery though is pretty much shot and needs repairing or ideally replacing.
