    Not a great photo, but this chair was handed down from my Grandparents to my Parents, to me. There are no markings that I can find. There is a back for the chair but I wanted to show the detail. The arms are angled back in the front. I have searched quite a bit online and can't find anything that looks like the same manufacturer.

      Hey there - just randomly came across this and thought I'd hopefully shed some light on this mystery. I have the same chair and it's marked France & Daverkosen - a high-end maker of Danish furniture that later became France & Son. Mine is stained beech and from the 1950s. I have seen it attribute to Orla Molgaard-Nielsen, a designer who was known for his collaboration with Peter Hvidt. The link below looks like the same chair that we both own but is attributed to another company. Anyways, it's a beautiful chair you have!

      Thanks much! From that page I found this one:

      Does your chair have a brass plaque? Mine does not, so I am wondering if it is an earlier version as mentioned in that description.
