This is a very finely made, early Danish teak dining table, possibly designed by Kai Kristiansen. This is an unusual design, since these were not exported to the US: this early 1960s piece was recently purchased in Denmark and brought over this summer.
Notice how beautifully made it is, with wide, curved laminated apron and carved teak brackets holding the leaves. it has a beautiful butterfly mechanism wherein the two leaves are stored within the table and flip up to meet with the half-round sides with brass pins. The study legs have an elegant carved detail.
This table presents very well for its age, and has the usual signs of wear consistent with age and use. These include an area of veneer damage to the edge, assorted nicks and scratches to the table top and edge, some small veneer chips in the apron. All in all, an excellent Danish table!
(Chairs shown are not included.) We have several sets of fantastic Danish chairs which would look great with this table!
