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.
