Carl Forslund Rip Van Lee Livingroom Chair in Original Boxes #190-01 SOLD

Status: Sold
Carl Forslund calls this piece as Rip Van Lee Upholstered Chair and, through my experience, is the hardest to find of all the miniature furniture made by Forslund. 1948. It comes with its original double box and original packing. The upholstered portion was made from a plaster-type material painted blue on top of which flocking was added. This chair has never been displayed and has been stored in it's double box. The carved arms and legs are cherry wood. There is a small portion on the left hand side of the chair where they missed some of the flocking and the underneath blue shows. Also, on the inside corners of the seat, the brown packing used has left a faint mark. Another example in my collection also has the same mark, so I believe they all came through like this. The style is so typical of the 1940's. Extremely rare. Height is 3", width is 2 3/4" depth is 3 1/4". The bottom of the chair is marked with the Forslund markings and also the inside box. The exterior box is marked Rip Van Lee. This is the first time I have encountered these double boxed pieces of Forslund.
