Footnotes

  • The registration number on the label indicates that this example was executed during the first year of production.

    Provenance
    Heals, London
    Acquired directly from the above by the grandfather of the present owner

    This example of the Long Chair bears unusual fin supports to the front legs. Although other Long Chairs are recorded with later (and often unsympathetic) amendments to the structure, the birch veneer used on the present lot appears contemporary to the piece suggesting the fins were created at Isokon as an additional means of support.
