Mid Century Svend Skipper Papa Bear Chair – Original Danish 1950s Design
Original 1950’s Svend Skipper ‘Pappa Bear’ Chair – Model 91.
This chair is from my own personal collection, which I had newly upholstered a couple of years ago. I have photos available of the full restoration process, which was professionally done to a high standard. The fabric is a beautiful huckleberry grey wool, with flecked complimenting tones. I still have some fabric left over as one day I was hoping to get an original matching stool to accompany the chair.
There were about 3-4 variants of the chair. This is the most desirable ‘barrel back’ version with solid rosewood hand rests.
Viewing of the chair is welcome and I even recommend due to the value of the piece. It’s extremely comfortable, but comfort can be subjective.
Materials: Upholsetred - Rosewood
