Set of eight teak dining chairs by Victor Wilkins for G-Plan, England, 1960s. This dining chair is designed by the British designer Victor Wilkins. The dining chair is highly influenced by the Danish designs of the time. The chairs are popular items nowadays. They are still very beautiful and well crafted. The round seating with the cross shaped frame makes a beautiful alternative to the often square shaped chairs of the mid-century. The chairs are good condition with normal traces of use consistent with age. They are authentic and all have a new black upholstery. This design is often wrongly attributed to Ib Kofod-Larsen.
