This chair is in very good condition.

The high-backed chair is of generous proportions and the beautifully streamlined curves create an impressive design statement.

We have attributed it to Skipper Mobler of Denmark, although the chair has no branding. We have had a light coloured bentwood frame easy chair with the same shape and design that was branded. The distinctive ebonised wood infil was a design feature of that chair too, so we are very confident in the attribution.

The bentwood frame is a light coloured laminated bentwood, most probably beech, that has been stained a deep mahogany colour. The leather is black with a matte finish and is in very good condition. 

The foot stool has some small scratches (probably from cat's claws or a buckle on boots) as seen in the photos. They are very short and the stool still presents very well. There are no marks like this on the chair.

The high backed seat comes with a head rest cushion that attaches via a weighted strap that goes over the top of the chair. This means it stays put but does not require a fastening method, so if you prefer the look of the chair without it there is no fastening left when the cushion is removed.

The chair measures 105cm tall, 65cm in width and 90cm deep. The footstool measures 35cm high, 62cm in width and 55cm deep.
