PETER HVIDT MODEL 516 SOLID TEAK AND RATTAN COFFEE TABLE
An outstanding first edition coffee table from 1956 designed by Peter Hvidt & Orla Molgaard Nielsen.
Produced by France & Daverkosen this is an extremely rare first generation example featuring a hand woven rattan undershelf. France & Daverkosen quickly changed construction methods to utilise a machine woven rattan sheet on all other examples of this design to cut down on construction time.
Produced to the highest standard with solid teak throughout with beautiful brass arms supporting the shelf. The attention to detail and quality of construction are as good as it gets, note the weaving holes underneath the shelf each capped with a tiny teak plug.
The condition is excellent. There are some minor losses to the rattan but it does not detract.
DIMENSIONS: 150cm Long x 50 Wide x 45 High
