Solidly built rocker by Ole Wanscher refinished in a walnut stain with new cream cotton lined upholstery over original spring cushions. A great survivor and ready for another 60 years. Ole Wanscher was a Danish furniture designer and one of the leading figures in the Scandinavian Design movement (a part of Mid-Century Modernism), at a time when Scandinavian Design achieved worldwide popularity. After completing his studies, Wanscher worked with Klint from 1924-1927, at which time he set up his own office, specializing in furniture design. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, Wanscher, working with master joiner A. J. Iversen, produced dozens of designs that are now seen as modern classics. In the 1950s, Wanscher left his private firm and began an association with P. Jeppesens Møbelfabrik A/S that would last for the rest of his professional life. Like his mentor Kaare Klint, Wanscher was influenced by a variety of sources, from 18th century British design through the furniture design of Ancient Egypt. One of Wanscher's most famous pieces was his so-called "Egyptian Stool" of 1960. He was also influenced by Greek and Chinese design.  Height: 33 in. (83.82 cm)Width: 25.25 in. (64.14 cm)Depth: 31 in.
