Moreddi Dining Table and Chairs

Fine Danish design.  This is one of the nicest dining sets we have featured in the shop over the last decade.  The table was designed for Moreddi by Skovmad and Andersen.  It has two leaves and can accommodate up to 10 comfortably as a large oval.  As a round table it seats four.  It is shown as a round and with one leaf.  The table comes with all the origianl protective pads.  The chairs were designed for Moreddi by Harry Ostergaard.  There are 6 chairs (4 side and 2 arm).  The design is very sculptural, and the chairs are surprisingly comfortable.  They retain their original leatherette upholstery.  I have never seen a dining set of this age in this original condition.  It is near mint.  The set was meticulously cared for by one NYC owner for the last 60 years.  There is a coordinating credenza by another maker which we will be posting.  Table, 47" round.  Each leaf is 23.5".  Fully extended, table is 94.5" l., 47" w.  Arm chairs, 31" h., 24" w., 19" d.  Side, 30" h., 19" w., 18" d.   Danish, c. 1950's  Table with 2 leaves, and 6 chairs $4,900.00 for the set
The chairs average around $5,000.00 for a set of 6 and the only other table I have found is in rosewood and retails at $6,100.00.
