Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard Nielsen Teak Drop Leaf Dining Table For France & Son

$6,086.32

About the Item

Stunning large teak drop leaf oval dining table, designed by Peter Hvidt & Orla Mølgaard. Made in Denmark for France & Søn. Maker's label. Circa 1950-60s. The table shows sculptural designed legs, which open to an oval shape on piano and brass ball hinges. It neatly stays in situ on metal clips to the underside. The top is made in solid teak which has beautiful figured grain. The top has been sympathetically re-finished by hand. This has been lightly taking back, and stained using a water stain to match the colour of the base (a water stain will not fade). An Aquacoat sealer has been added, giving a smooth waxed finish, and making it more durable to water and heat. The table still retains a few light authentic marks to highlight its genuine heritage. The table will comfortably seat six and up to eight. Danish designer duo Peter Hvidt (1916-1986) and Orla Mølgaard-Nielsen (1907-1993) worked together between 1944-1975. Condition report: There is a very small nick to one of the legs at the top, as shown in photograph number 12. This will not be on show in situ. There is a scuff mark to the inside leg as shown in photograph number 9, and a small mark to the top edge as shown in the last two photographs. With the leaves dropped it is 42cm deep.
