Wonderful original Papa Bear. This ingenious piece comes in perfect condition, even the upholstery with its high-qualitiy woolen fabric in warm grey. The legs and nails are recently reworked. Manufactured by A.P. Stolen in 1951. After Wegner studies at the Arts and Crafts School in Copenhagen, he gets hired as draftsman for the architecture office of Erik Møller and furniture designer Arne Jacobsen, who built the Århus city hall. Next to Finn Juhl, Arne Jacobsen and Børge Mogensen, Hans Wegner is one of the great Danish designers.
