    My mother's parents shipped this to her from Copenhagen in the 1950s. It's undergone at least one reupholstery project since then. Although it bears similarities to a Finn Juhl SW-86 it is not. Any ideas or input would be most welcome.

      I contacted the Finn Juhl folks in Copenhagen. They stated the chair looked like a Juhl, walked like a Juhl and quacked like a Juhl but that it wasn't in their current production line so they could not be certain.

      I have a set of 8 of these made by baker furniture. They are all the same backing like this chair. I just learned that Fin Juhl partnered with baker in 1951 to sell to American Market.
