Pair of 1960s Series 7 Butterfly Chairs by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen in Lovely Original Condition


This lovely pair of original Series 7 butterfly chairs by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen came from a college in Harrogate where they were in use from the 1960s to the 1990s before being hidden away in storage.  The evidence of their former life is written all over them in all manner of dents, scratches and marks (see photos), but these simply lend the chairs a wonderful sense of history and faded elegance.  Despite their tough past, both chairs are structurally sound and very comfortable to sit on, but it should be remembered that they are 60 year old collector's pieces (the Series 7 celebrates its 60th birthday this year!) and perhaps not best suited to rigorous daily use!

Two more pairs in similar original condition will be available soon -  please contact us if you'd like to purchase more than one pair.
