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.

Bas van Pelt (Netherlands, 1900-1945)
EMS, My Home. 1930s
Bas Van Pelt design modernist chair – The chair has been confirmed by the Bas van Pelt archives as being as a possible prototype and if not, a very rare design. Bas van Pelt often designed experimental furniture to place in the shop window and would only have the designs produced when the appropriate number of orders were received.
Bas van Pelt began his shop ‘My Home’ in The Hague, Netherlands in 1931 and within a short period the company opened showrooms in other cities such as Maastricht and Amsterdam. The domestic interior design firm focused on producing high-quality modern interior furniture. Eventually right up until into the 1990s Bas van Pelt furniture and fabrics were also sold throughout The Netherlands and beyond by well-known modernist suppliers and manufacturers such as Thonet, D3, LOV and Gispen.
