Early original labeled set of six dining chairs - CH24 Wishbone - by Hans Wegner - Carl Hansen & Son. Ultimate find for the Mid Century Modern collector. The Wishbone Chair, designed in 1949 and produced by Carl Hansen & Søn since 1950, went on to become Wegner's most successful design of all time. These chairs can still be purchased new from Carl Hansen and Son in Denmark for $795 MSRP each. I prefer originals as they have a story/history to tell. This ORIGINAL set is in very good condition - dark blue lacquered frame with jute rope weaved seats. Early Carl Hansen & Søn foil labels on the underside of the chair. Chairs have some wear spots and minor paint knicks over the years. One can easily match paint and touch up. I have not attempted to feather in paint or repair preferring leave chairs in as-is in original condition. The original owner indicated she purchased chairs in NYC 50 yrs ago. She did pay $250 per chair to have the seats rewoven to original specs. Really a beautiful set of 6 chairs. Listed as local pick up only, however, hand delivery available to NYC metros, CT & MA ... please inquire. I can work with a blanket wrapper shipper such as Plycon Shipping. All shipping costs responsibility of the buyer.
