Since I mostly repair mid century furniture I often do work for the original owners. This is great since I get to hear the stories of how the pieces were acquired. This set of four Hans Wegner CH23 chairs and dining table were purchased in 1970 on a trip to Denmark. Since coming to the States they haven’t left the home since I brought them to the shop to reweave the seats and do some minor repairs on the joints that have come loose. The owner choose to keep the original finish so I just cleaned them up a bit.
The CH 23 was designed in 1951. These chairs are a later version so they have the paper label but were still made by Carl Hansen & Son.
