My wife just happened upon this and the price was right. I know next to nothing about American furniture, but it looks authentic to me. Has an IBM inventory sticker. Casters made by Bassick.
Here is what only appears to be a Finn Juhl FJ-49 Chieftain chair marked by Niels Vodder. Quittenbaum auctions sold it back in 2013 for 16 thousand euros.
Alf Svensson for Fritz Hansen.
The backrest is teak veneer. The cross inlays are beech. On this chair at least.
i don’t think we have much way of knowing at this point what the original finish might have been.
And according to an old Carl Hansen pricelist I have it was indeed available in Beech/Teak.
I think the frame is beech actually.
Huh? no, no misunderstanding, at least not that I know of. I do it for personal passion to.
Send me an email at my name Zephyr Renner at google’s email service.
I have also found a catalog that shows this construction for the chair, so it is indeed authentic.
Or maybe the crest rail is Afrormosia and the frame is stained light wood of some species?
