Description

Royal House Antiques is delighted to offer for sale this very significant, original fully stamped 1965 Fritz Hansen, completely restored egg chair with matching footstool
Please note the delivery fee listed is just a guide, it covers within the M25 only for the UK and local Europe only for international, if you would like an accurate quote please send me your postcode and Iíll provide you with the exact price
I have another pair of these listed under my other items, they are from July 1968
Where to begin! If you are looking at this listing then the chances are you know how rare and important this pair is, they have been on a journey of restoration which Iíll talk you through. The chair comes complete with the original Fritz Hansen stamp which dates the piece to January 1965
The original leather hide had faded back to the pre dyed colour, as such I sent them to my leather polisher who was trained by Ralph Lauren when they rolled out their ďat homeĒ division across Europe, Ralph taught him how to restore and colour old leather using traditional techniques.
This pair have been washed back and hand dyed six times, antique shaded then sealed, waxed down and polished again, they are now basically in perfect better than retail condition
The metal base frames have of course the original patination, I can have these professionally polished for the cost price however I prefer them as they are, it has taken nearly 60 years for them to obtain this colour and it would be a crime to strip it off
This pair will never come up for sale again, it is the only one set, if you are looking for the finest example in the world with the nicest hand dyed leather colour then look no further
The hide has multiple patina imperfections as you would imagine based on the age and use, this model didn't come with the seat cushions but I can have one made should the new owner wish for the cost price
