Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Stunning and ultra rare rosewood variant of the 1959 Gianfranco Frattini '877' lounge chair complete with the even rarer matching rosewood ottoman. Both pieces are signed with original early Cassina manufacturer's labels. The beautiful rosewood variant is extremely rare and valuable as 95% of these chairs were produced in italian walnut, the special order high end rosewood option was extremely expensive and hence today command a significant premium.

Both pieces have had their upholstery fully restored including new original specification latex foam which is expensive and hard to find today. The support webbing has also been fully renewed with the original specification Pirelli rubber straps and both pieces have been finished in matching high quality Danish Kvadrat 'Hallingdall 65' fabric designed by Nana Ditzel. The lounge chair upholstery is finished with beautifully crafted rosewood buttons to both profiles as per the original specification. Photos taken during the restoration process are available on request to seriously interested clients.

Both rosewood frames have been lightly restored to maintain the original vintage appeal and authenticity of both pieces. Light user wear is still present in a couple of areas. Please ask for condition report photos if you are seriously interested.

The ottoman measures :
24.4" X 19.7" X 16.15" high or 62 cm x 50 cm x 41cm high.

A stunning and super rare ensemble. A very rare opportunity.
