Hans J. Wegner AP-19 Papa Bear Chair & Ottoman by AP Stolen, Denmark - Danish Modern

Original c. 1950s AP-19, Papa Bear Chair, by Hans J Wegner (1914-2007) made by AP Stolen, Denmark. A classic masterpiece of Danish Modern design. The chair received it's name after a critic described the armrests as "great bear paws embracing you from behind." Exceptional craftsmanship and lumbar design.

This chair is from an old Denver estate. Brought in from the original owners that purchased the chair mid-late 1950s while in Germany. At some point chair has been reupholstered in black wool fabric. The chair appears to have some original fabric under the "newer" fabric. It is stamped #6 to frame. The ottoman is stamped AP Stolen. Guaranteed original/authentic.

The upholstery shows stains. It is structurally sound with age appropriate wear to wood. Priced for new upholstery.
