Set of 6 vintage Danish cowhorn dining chairs manner of Hans Wegner
The backs are ebonised ash ( or oak , but more likely ash ) and are more nicely detailed than a similar set we found online in cherry wood which were described as being 1990’s . The wear to the ebonised finish , the use of ebonised ash makes us think that they probably date to the late 1970’s or 1980’s . The chrome is in nice vintage condition as is the original black vinyl to the seats . We’ve not replaced the vinyl as colour and fabric is a matter of personal taste . We recommend replacing the upholstery if they’re bought for use in the UK as they won’t currently meet UK Fire Regulations . Our upholsterer would charge £15 per chair to replace the fabric .
A nice sturdy comfortable chair that would look great in a contemporary kitchen
They’re nicer than the current CH88T model by Carl Hansen which is a re-issue of the original Wegner design that are for sale at over £400 a chair . The CH88T is stained beech with wood seats on a steel base .
They’re 56.5cms wide at their widest point . Seat height is 46cms
We’ve shown them with an Italian glass dining table that we currently have in stock .
