Kurt Østervig - Oval Drop-Leaf Table in Teak for Jason Møbler, 1962 - Denmark
This rare drop-leaf table shows an unusual, impressive base of six V-shaped legs, made with extraordinary craftsmanship.
The clear shape of the oval top nicely contrasts to the exciting, open frame. The wood joints of the legs are smooth and rounded. The legs on both ends can be turned, which allows the ends of the top to drop vertically.
The wooden hinges are wonderful, a nice detail as a consequence of the table’s functional drop leafs. In a few seconds the well sized dining table becomes a wonderful centre table, which is a unique and well executed feature of this breathtaking piece.
The piece is in very good condition, nicely patinated and well preserved.
