Diego Giacometti 


Fauteuil Pommeaux de canne


vers 1977


bronze et fer patiné, laiton, et garniture en cuir


81 x 52,5 x 56 cm ; 31 ⅞ x 20 ⅝ x 22 in.

Very good overall condition consistent with age and use. This iconic model presents with a beautiful subtle cloudy dark grey patina, when seen in person. There are instances of wear, some scattered losses of patina and hairline scratches throughout. Some oxidation marks inherent to the aging process of the material. The cushion appears to have been re-upholstered at a later stage.
