Vintage Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen Egg Chair with ottoman. Yes, this is the original leather from birth in 1974. Miraculously bereft of any significant visible flaws lo these many years. This leather will make you salivate. The color changes depending on the light and angle, but I would describe it as 40% dark chocolate, 40% tobacco and 20% olive. This sinfully decadent amalgam of colors is matched only by the buttery smooth texture. Honestly, the early 70’s versions of this Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Egg chair are the most sublime. The stitching and fit of the leather from this era is exquisite. Stretched and wrapped tight as the drum, you can set your watch to the precision craftsmanship.
The top stem of the chrome base bears the Fritz Hansen maker’s mark and production date. Excellent overall vintage condition. Original leather with only very minor imperfections in visible areas. Separated seam under cushion has been sealed with leather repair kit (see pic). The separated seam is only cosmetic and is not visible under the seat cushion. Leather has been professionally cleaned and conditioned.
Chair: 33” Wide x 32” Deep x 42.25” High (16.5” seat height)
