Three Legged Treasures..

Hans Olsen Teak Tripod Chairs

My heart almost stopped when I came across these in a junkshop. Realising quickly that the vendor had no idea of their value I had to use all my restraint not to jump for joy! Originally part of a set of four this pair were discovered during a house clearance. Designed in 1952 as part of a dining set by Hans Olsen for Frem Mobelfabrik, they are constructed entirely from Burmese teak and have a striking grain pattern. I had to work hard get the ciggerette smell out of the vinyl and learn new techniques to remedy a loose joint. But rarely does a find bring so much happiness. Sold**
