description This design was custom-ordered for the interior of Magasin du Nord’s department stores in the 1950s. Few were produced and this rare set comes from the collection of a former employee of Magasin du Nord’s Odense location. The set has remained in the family ever since.
condition As designed, there are holes drilled to all four legs on each example. Some have been filled while others are open. Light fading to wood is noticeable on each example. A few scratches and abrasions to leather. Good vintage condition overall.
