Mid-Century Modern Danish Teak Bookcase, 1960s

$1,416.06Asking Price


Mid-Century Modern Danish teak bookcase, 1960s This Classic Scandinavian bookcase was designed by Danish master carpenter Johannes Sorth for Nexø Møbelfabrik, Bornholm in 1956. The idea was to combine a cabinet and a book case, and it was an instant success. It was produced in five different versions, and this version has three wide shelves and a cabinet with double sliding doors and shelf. It can stand alone or be combined with other book cases from the same series. Loads of storage space in the large cabinet, and the wide top shelves are height adjustable for individual needs. Standing round tapered legs. Very good handbuilt quality. True craftsmanship from the Danish Mid-Century Modern era. Model number stamped on back. Amazing vintage condition. Only few signs of use on the deepest shelf. Gently cleaned, oiled and polished.
