Offered is a Mid Century fiberglass/burlap shell arm chair. The design has been attributed to Luther Conover. He was part of a group of designers (Pacifica Group) which included designers Muriel Coleman and Peter Rooke-Ley… Important figures in early California Modernism. The shell has a magnificent curvaceous form presenting an exquisite profile… The special textured finish is exceptional… A process where burlap cloth was molded into layers of fiberglass. The color is a soft rich golden brown and is poised against dramatic enameled black legs… Capped with the original plastic feet yeah!! The metal H- base design sits on thick rubber shock mounts which have a male/female design for attachment. In used vintage condition. This chair is unsigned and has no makers marks. Has some regular wear for a chair this age. Metal legs have some missing paint/ scratching. This would be a very easy restoration project. Just needs some new paint on the legs and maybe a coat of lacquer on the chair itself! Has a small chip/crack on the right side of the chair (see photos).
