Papa Bear Lounge Chair Model 91 by Sven Skipper, 1960s

$6,000

About

Original Danish high back chair designed in the 1960s by Svend Skipper as model #91 for Skipper Mobler. While very similar in design Hans Wegner's Papa Bear chair and designed and produced around the same time the Svend Skipper version is slightly more rounded and streamlined slightly more refined and elegant. A little less heft while still making a big statement. Overall very good condition but needs to get reupholstered which we can assist with.
