Teak Dining Chairs Mid Century Modern, perhaps Danish - need help to ID please
@mark737, I am sure you are right! Multiple sellers say so:-)
Thank you very much for your help!
@fredhh So, how would you translate that stamp? It looks like Vestervig is a small town in NW Denmark. Was there a mobelfabrik named Eriksen located there?
@mark737 I don't know it exactly, but seems there was a møbelfabrik in Vestervig called Eriksen.
I'll find out tomorrow.
I noticed several listings included the initial H in the name, so H. Vestervig Eriksen. I found an entry on Geni listing a Holger Vestervig Eriksen born in 1932 in Hejring, Klejtrup. I don't know anything about this website and their accuracy but it also had the following info about him:
The genus Dahl no. 1382.a
Fantastically beautiful and decorative chairs from Tromborg and son eftf. Holger Vestervig Eriksen in Aarhus. Holger Vestervig Eriksen has, among other things, designed furniture for the City Council Hall in Skanderborg Municipality.
Vestervig Eriksen started in Vestergade 58, but later moved its production to Lystrup. Production ceased after a fire in 1977.
Wikkelsøe was for a period associated with Vestervig Eriksen's furniture factory.
Great @mark737, you found out more than I did today because I didn't find out anything! 😀
@mark737, @fredhh, I found some more info for those of you who really want to dive deep into the history: The factory was opened in 1938 in Aarhus by Brdr. Tromborg. Holger Vestervig Eriksen, son of a teacher, was trained there from 1948 to 1952 and took it over in 1957. In 1966 he moved it to a new factory buildung in Lystrup, the one Mark mentioned. Lystrup is also on the written on the stamp. The company was specialized in dining chairs.
Eftf. is short for Efterfolger
"People buy a chair, and they don't really care who designed it." (Arne Jacobsen)
You might also point out that the Eftf suggests that the takeover is representing itself as similar to a generational turnover from father to son, maybe master to apprentice, but without the genetic connection. And the v/ (for ved) is giving the name of the owner who is running it now.
