Carlo Jensen rosewood secretair cabinet
Designer: Carlo Jensen - Producer: Poul Hundevad & Co - Year of design: 1960 - Model HU40/3 and HU40/12
Stunning Rio-rosewood unit comprised of a base cabinet with locking panel doors and bureau bookcase top.
All 4 of the shelves in the bookcase top are adjustable and/or removable, as are the 4 shelves in the bureau.
Internal storage divided into 4 drawers and 1 shelf all of which are adjustable.
Internal shelves, drawers and lining are sycamore wood. 1 of the drawers is lined with felt/baize, traditionally this is used for storing cutlery.
Condition: Brilliant, both pieces are very clean, have a soft even oiled finish, wonderful patina and stunning wood grain. Light scratches, consummate with age, but these are all under Danish oil and do not detract from the piece at all. The locks work perfectly, key is present and all the solid wood shelves are perfect.
Marked with makers name to rear.
