Rare vintage deadstock find; in mint condition! Very rare original Butterfly Stool made by Tendo in Japan. Mint deadstock; the Sori Yanagi Butterfly Stook remains unopened in the original box from Tendo. Tendo has been the original manufacturer since 1954. Tendo was selected by Sori Yanagi himself because of their quality craftsmanship and experience with the traditional craft of Japanese furniture. We were extremely lucky to be able to find a very limited number of these Butterfly Stools from an avid collector couple (husband and wife) who purchased them in Japan many years ago. The chairs were stored in a climate-controlled warehouse ever since they were purchased and were never used. The Butterfly Stool is in mint condition with only some very minor pitting of the metal as pictured because of its age (which only adds to its appeal we find). The outer cardboard Tendo box shows some signs of age. The ship fully assembled (unlike the Vitra edition). Please note: images are from a Butterfly we took out of the box and will keep for ourselves. Your Butterfly will ship factory sealed in the original box from Tendo!
