Piero Fornasetti Modernist Vintage Modern Mid Century

Authentic Piero Fornasetti chair in his signature asthetic. The name of this chair is the "Strumenti Musicali" chair and it dates to ca. the 1950s. Fornasetti made these chairs in Red and Black and this is a Red example, obviously. Authenticity is guaranteed. We purchased this chair many years ago at a reputable local auction and it had its Fornasetti label when we bought it. Also, another example of this chair was featured in the comprehensive Fornasetti auction that Christies held on May 16th, 1998. (Lot #198, estimated at $3,000 - $5,000). The label from my chair has come loose over the years and is now lost, but authenticity is unconditionally guaranteed and the Fornasetti afficionados will instantly recognize this chair as authentic. NO RESERVE and a very low start since it is broken and being sold as-is.

SHIPPING: Please note, I can only ship this chair within the lower 48 US States due to size and I will probably need to ***unscrew the back support from the seat of the chair in order to meet UPS/FedEx shipping size requirements**.

CONDITION: Please note: ***Requires professional restoration by an expert.*** The back has broken loose from its support, as shown, and two chunks of the back are still screwed into the back. **Please see the many pics; this chair requires professional restoration by an expert craftsman.
