This is an early and rare version of this iconic 1930s design.
Finmar were a wholesale company who imported Aalto design plywood furniture from Finland to the UK between 1934-65. H.G.Dunn & Sons were one of the few furniture retailers supplied by Finmar from the 1930s. (the UK had very few retailers of modernist furniture at that time)
This stool retains its original label for H.G.Dunn & Sons, House furnishers Bromley.
This is a rare version with upholstered seat. It retains its original blue fabric (although a section is missing as seen).
All original in A/F condition.
