About

Unique rectangular coffee table. Brass top with moulded edges rests upon square Cuban mahogany legs including brass shoes with wavy lines. Legs connected by decorative stretchers. Manufactured by master cabinetmaker Jacob Kjær. Date of manufacture: circa 1940 Provenance: Baron Mogens Wedell-Wedellsborg's (1899-1976) residence, Skovgårdsvej 65 in Charlottenlund just north of Copenhagen, Denmark. History: In 1940 Baron Mogens Wedell-Wedellsborg acquired the residence on Skovgårdsvej. Before moving in he had a number of changes made. The remodelling was managed by architect Acton Bjørn who also designed a number of pieces of furniture for Wedell-Wedellsborg's new home including this brass and Cuban mahogany coffee table. The above has been confirmed by the widow of Acton Bjørn. Literature: 'Smukke Hjem i Danmark og Udlandet', ed. S. A. Arboe and Gunhild Gantzel, 1944, p. 41, 55 and 88. The table is pictured in the hall of the Skovgårdsvej villa and referred to on page 55.
