Already uncommon presumably due to the low print run. History of France and
Son, nee France and Daverkosen and the production of the models by Finn Juhl,
Grete Jalk, Hvidt and Molgaard and Ole Wanscher notably. With a reprint of the
1961 catalogue at the rear. France and Son had a worldwide distribution with
over 60 shops in the United Kingdom carrying the range hence why they are
probably the most common (bar Jacobsen's Ant chair variations) Danish designs
that turn up at auction and in house clearances still.
