Description Extraordinary and important pair of mid-19th century Danish chairs based on the ancient Roman prototypes, crafted in rosewood with original horsehair upholstery and tufting designed by influential architect and proponent of the Neo-Antique movement, Michael Gottlieb Birckner Bindesbøll (1800-1856) for the country residence Krathuset (1844, now demolished).

This pair of chairs was de-accessioned from the State Art Museum, Copenhagen and still bear the Museum’s inventory labels. Others chairs from the set remain in the museum collection and have been included in various scholarly treatments of the Neo-Antique movement. The museum’s records indicate that they were purchased from a descendant of the Puggaard family, who were the orignal inhabitants of Krathuset.
