Rare, early production Borge Mogensen 'Spanish' chairs - model 226 - Fredericia

5,950.00

Description: Rare and stunning pair of 'Spanish' chairs. These are very early production examples. There are slight variations to the design.

1. The stitching detail is different - there is a stitched seam on the sides of the back-support, as per Borge Mogensen's original drawings (see photo).

2. These chairs have two straight back stretchers.

3. One chair is stamped 226 - this is the early Fredericia model number.

Designer: Borge Mogensen (1914-72)

Manufacturer: Fredericia, Denmark

Date: 1958

Dimensions: Width 82cm; Depth 63cm; Height 67cm

Condition: Great, vintage condition. The oak is a lovely light golden colour and structurally strong. The leather has a wonderful rich patina.

There are two areas on the straps where a section of additional leather has been added for extra support - this has been done professionally and in a very sensitive way. The stitching on one of the back supports has been re-done - the original stitching had become loose. Please see the photos of all these repairs.  

All the repairs have been done sympathetically to conserve the chairs.

A unique opportunity to buy stunning and rare examples of this classic design.
