Pair of Hans Wegner for Johannes Hansen folding chairs

I knew these chairs were good...but I had no idea HOW good! I figured the pair was good for a few thousand bucks, maybe a little more...turns out that two pairs have sold in the last two years at the Wright 20 auction for $22,800! Odd that both sets should sell for the exact same amount, but there you go. Interestingly enough, there's ANOTHER pair set to sell at Wright this Tuesday! The estimate is $10000-15000, I'll be very curious to see what they actually go for. Here's a link to the listing on my website, and here are some more photos of the lovely specimens.

Those wooden folding chairs are awesome and inspired me so much that I surfed through the web and I found similar ones at Ballard Designs.
