Extendable Danish Rosewood Pedestal Dining Table
$750 or Best Offer
A stunning and rare extending rosewood dining table model HM25/55 designed by John Mortensen and made by Heltborg Møbler in Denmark in the early 60's. Round top (51" diameter without leaf, 70.675" with one leaf) with quadrant cross leg design which extends with a large leaf to suit 8 diners. The pedestal design means that there are no legs to worry about, yet it is extremely stable, even when fully extended due to the quality of design and manufacture. The table extends with sliding steel runners and the legs split into two pairs which support each end allowing for maximum free space for diners comfort. The table is in rich grain Rosewood and has impressive book matched veneers with solid Rosewood edge bandings.
Condition (Fair/Good/Vintage) - As pictured it is oiled but it could no doubt use a light refinishing. Likely refinished by ABC
