Carved Hand Chair after Pedro Friedeberg

$17,950

About

A unique, hand-carved wood chair in the shape of a cupped hand with detailing down to the wrinkles and fingernails. The base whimsically detailed as a shirt cuff with buttons. Solid. Similar in design to Pedro Friedberg's work, but with a distinct folky character.
