No, It's Obviously Not An Arne Jacobson Egg Chair By Fritz Hansen...But It's Still A Fun Swivel Chair "In The Style Of". It's Origin Is A Mystery Since I Cannot Find Another Like It On The Web. Status: Avaiable.
I've actually got a PAIR of these with one already in my booth at The Antique Mall Of Creve Coeur and the other waiting for a place to put it. They needed a good vacuuming but turned out to be much nicer than I thought from looking at the craigslist pics from whence they came.
I had to drop by the booth in Creve Coeur anyway to take some additional photos of the bedroom set that you can see in the background, so since I had this one of the two twin chairs with me...this is where it got dropped off. When I picked up the pair, they were kind of a mess. I had to vacuum them out and while messing with that I discovered the previous owners had shimmed the bases to make them sit more upright. More upright? I KNOW!!! I removed the shims and they are now much more comfortable.
Note the sturdy and stylish base. These were not cheap knockoffs. I wish I could find where they came from, but I've spent a bit of time looking for a match and came up empty handed. And what do you think of the fabric? At first I thought it was Holstein cow pattern, but a co-worker pointed out that it looks more like a Dalmatian dog. Wait, what exactly did Cruella De Vil want to do with all those puppies?!
