  • Description
    Exquisite Model JH-540 Valet Chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner for cabinetmaker Johannes Hansen. Originally designed for a king, no detail is overlooked in its craftsmanship. Sculptural form is carved from solid oak wood, showcasing the splendor of the wood. Minimal silhouette is pared down to three tapered legs. The hinged seat opens to reveal a compartment for storage, padded with cognac leather. Finished with solid brass hardware. A superb example of this sought-after design, acquired from single, original owner. Impeccable condition, with rich, original patina intact. Copenhagen, Denmark, 1950s.
