Details and Condition:: Designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1963, “The Shell Chair” is one of Wegner’s most iconic pieces. The three-legged chair achieves a floating lightness due to its wing-like lines and the arching curves and tapered shapes of its laminated legs. This limited anniversary edition (only 250 pieces) is crafted from exclusive zebrano veneer and upholstered in Brown leather. The chair carries a sterling silver plate with its special edition number (the plate is placed underneath the chair)
