JJP Oud (Netherlands 1890-1963)
.
Very rare JJP Oud chair from the director’s room of the Shell Oil company building, completed just after WWII in The Hague /1950.
Probably manufactured by HP Mutters & Sons or Eckhart’s meubelfabrik – Two companies that manufactured other known pieces from the building, now in the Boijman museum collection in Rotterdam.
.

The chair/design and the design of the interior from which it came is fully documented in Elizabeth Reinhartz-Tergau’s excellent book on the architect published by Boijman van Beuningen museum in 1990 /p.155. (See image 2 which shows the documented image below the supporting text)

Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

x2 Model 66 chairs and table

Finmar labels to the underside of the table and to one of the chairs (the other shows evidence of where the label once was).

Each piece has a very good period colour and shows patina of wear and tear as would be expected and hoped for. The Finmar labels are recognised evidence of them being early edition genuine 1930s examples.
