    Hallo, I’m desperately searching the meaning of the danish chair maker or designer, which is exactly the second mark from the left in the first image of danish logos (two specular F, one in black, the other in red, in white field).
    I found it on 4 chairs of my family, bought in Switzerland in 1962/63, and I need to know the name of this mark; there’s the firm but it’s not readable. Can you help me please? Thank-you so much from Italy.

    The firm is called: France & Son Aktieselskab. Examples of some pieces are here and here. These include designs by Finn Juhl.
