A wide chair with a shaped back with longer arm rests than the Cow Horn Chair. The back is formed from two pieces of curved wood that are joined at the centre with six tenons in rosewood.
The legs are set at a slight angle, the front legs proud of the seat and rounded at the top - reminiscent of the Wishbone or Y Chair. There are stretchers at the front and back as well as between the front and back legs - all set close to the seat. The cane seat is shaped, curved down at the front and back, and the upholstered version has the leather upholstered directly over the rails of the seat.
A round table with four of these chairs in teak were shown by Johannes Hansen at the Cabinetmakers' Exhibition in 1961. Svend Erik Møller in Politiken wrote:
“His new models will not cause a stir - they will not even become the subjects of discussion. It is simply outstanding furniture making, the result of an ideal cooperation between an architect and a cabinetmaker who understand each other perfectly.”
