This chair needs new foam and i'm thinking of selling it but don't have any idea about the designer, value, etc. I think it's particularly beautiful design.
Thank you. Mark

What?
What kind of set-up? That I have tried twice to post pictures and failed twice. That you are paranoid? That you are not paranoid and this forum is rife with dishonesty? I just trying to deal with some furniture my parents bought in the early 1960's that doesn't fit in my house.
I'll try some other way of posting the photos here. If it doesn't work I'll try a non-PhotoBucket approach.
Any suggestions?

The mark is for Fritz Hansen. The design is the seal chair by Kofod Larsen. Christensen and Larsen were the primary cabinetmaker for this chair, but apparently Fritz Hansen also made a limited number version of it as well.
Fritz Hansen should ring a bell, as you have a photo on your Photobucket page that has those words in its file name.

Thank you!
I was pretty sure of the Fritz Hansen but had no idea of the other info. Thanks again.

Kofod-Larsen Seal chair
looking at images in Google for this chair was quite educational. It seems that the version made for Fritz Hansen was quite different, and I think, much more beautiful although I only found 2 images for this variant. Even the pictures don't do it justice because the reupholstering of the pair was poorly done, lacking in definition. And the piece on Vint looks slightly off. Vint has a lovely Papa Bear (I practically lived in one as a teenager) and another for sale that is so badly fixed, reproduced, whatever, that it's downright ugly. It seems to be a tricky business.

The chair certainly looks like a Kofod-Larsen design, and combines elements from the Elisabeth chair, Seal chair, and other Kofod-Larsen designs. I was hereto unfamiliar with this design, or that Kofod-Larsen ever made anything for Fritz Hansen.
Technically, I do not believe this is a Seal chair, but a design in its own right, as it is quite different.
The seal chair is now being reproduced by Bdrs Petersens, and prior to that was made by OPE, in Sweden.

The arms of your chair are most similar to the arms of the Elisabeth Chair, in my opinion. The tops are quite flat, with the back ends upturned, and they have very sharply defined edges. The rest of the chair frame and the upholstered section is quite different from the Elisabeth Chair however. It would be hard for me to believe that Kofod-Larsen did not play a role in your chair's design, but as I had said, I have never heard of him doing any work for Fritz Hansen. There seem to be very few examples of your chair out there.

Why don't you contact Fritz Hansen themselves and see what they say?
