Arne Jacobsen swan chair - Black leather produced by Fritz Hansen 1976
Arne Jacobsen all original black leather SWAN chair on castors. Produced 1976. Beautiful patina and original black leather.
This rare authentic version of the iconic chair is a desk chair which has castors and height adjustable stem.
The chair is upholstered in the original 1976 black leather and this has aged very well with a wonderful patina and soft worn look.
The chair has height adjustable stem to get the best working height at a desk / table.
The dye-cast aluminium base has the original castors which are all in perfect working order and undamaged.
The chair has the tilt mechanism still inside but I confirmed with Fritz Hansen that this was made in-operable by welding it shut after 1975. The chair was still produced with it until the stock ran out and new chairs were made without it.
The chair bears the original FH label as this is NOT a worthless Chinese fake.
