Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Rare x4 Model 60 stacking stools. 1930s. Finmar.

Finmar labels to the underside on three of the stools (the other shows evidence of where the label once was).

Four great original examples of Aaltos model 60 stools – Each has a great 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 stools.
