Exceptional Unrestored Pierre Jeanneret Armchair for Chandigarh

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A rare opportunity to acquire an icon of French modern design.
This example and others that are available is completely untouched and never restored or refinished. An original and honest example.

Interestingly, these chairs have a plastic webbed seat as the City decided that cane was too problematic and was not very durable for the longevity and heavy use these chairs typically received.

Each example has a beautiful wear and patina from decades of use.
Some exhibit slight bending of the seat pan and arms from temperature and humidity fluctuations as one would expect from the climate. Some have slight widening of joints or separation of wood or joints. All are beautiful and untouched.
Please inquire on quantities and exact condition.
