Danish architects Peter Hvidt and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen designed a beautiful collection of mix-and-match teak cases for the renowned cabinetmaker Søborg Møbelfabrik in the 1950s. We are very pleased to offer three pieces from the collection. All of the cases are crafted of solid teak planks (unlike most Danish case goods) in order to create the gorgeous finger-jointed joinery at each corner.
This chest, designed for linen and china storage, features features a drop-down surface with two shallow, divided, dovetailed drawers inside. The original key is included. Below are five drawers with hand-carved pulls. It has the wonderful patina of decades old, well-cared-for teak. It retains the brass badge and stamp from John Stuart, the high-end importer/retailer where it was purchased. It is in excellent vintage condition with some minor dings and scratches; a very light ring on the top; a tiny, old blended chip on one drawer corner and other very minor chips on drawers. The back panel has a hole drilled through the back in the upper right to allow electrical cords to pass through. Please see photos.
