Listed for sale is one of the earliest examples of an Alvar Aalto 34/402 armchair, manufactured by Finsven in Sweden. This along with another Aalto 31 chair came from an estate in Princeton, NJ. The chairs were purchased at the same time (from the same place when new) and the other example is Marked "AALTO DESIGN Made In Sweden 31". This chair presumably is labelled something similar underneath its upholstery. The chair dates potentially as early as the 1930's. With this in mind, it is increasingly difficult nowadays to find Pre-Artek Aalto Chairs such as this. Authenticity is guaranteed.
Plywood structure is in great condition without dents or scratches. Wear and patina is appropriate for its age.
The current upholstery has two small tears on the top corners but can most definitely be used if desired. Its otherwise excellent. Re-upholstery is also most definitely a possibility.
