School of Carlo Mollino, Pair of Reclining Armchairs, circa 1955


School of Carlo Mollino Turin, Italy Reclining Armchairs (pair), circa 1955 Sculptural Italian Walnut wooden frame, brass fittings and reclining mechanism. Upholstered seat and back covered in (later) blue velour fabric. These elegant and well crafted chairs have a strong resemblance to the 1950s works of the design greats, Carlo Mollino, Gio Ponti, Paolo Buffa and Carlo di Carli. Although we are selling as un-attributed, these are quite possibly by one of the better known Italian designers of the period. Selling with later but not new fabric, we can also offer an upholstery service. We are also offering a matching pair in brown fabric, and will consider selling the chairs individually too - although they do go well in pairs...
