Cuban mahogany console table with drawers by Ole Wanscher
This large Cuban mahogany console table was designed by professor and architect Ole Wanscher (1903-1985). On the front is has four drawers with brass handles and fittings.
It was executed in the 1950s by master cabinetmaker A.J. Iversen, Copenhagen, Denmark.
In the early part of the 20th century Andreas J. Iversen (1888-1979) was one of the driving forces behind the idea that carpenters and architects should begin to collaborate. He firmly believed that all the knowledge architects had combined with the skills of trained carpenters would result in something extraordinary. And he was right. When the two groups lowered their guards, dropped their prejudices magic happened and the clean functional style of Danish Modern was born.
Wanscher and Iversen collaborated throughout their careers with stunning results.
The console table has the A. J. Iversen label on its underside and one brass key is included.
