Cowhorn Chair Hans Wegner

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

One of the most beautiful chairs ever created...Hans Wegner's Cowhorn Chair exemplifies the art of sculptural chair design.

This is an early example and is rarely available. Two outstanding features are the curvature of the arm and the joining wedges visible in the center of the back.

Chair retains a fine original finish.

Chair is in our warehouse.
