Description

Beautiful vintage c.1950’s / 60’s mid century danish modern serving tray by Jens Quistgaard for Dansk of Denmark! This tray comes from the rare “Two Woods” collection, designed by Quistgaard himself for Dansk and made in Denmark in the 1960’s.

According to the Dansk pre-1964 Catalog, this model is #1502 from the “Cane & Teak” group and was referred to as “An unexpected matching of two beautiful woods”. The line was in production for a very short time and was discontinued due to high cost of both labor and materials. Therefore, only a very limited amount of pieces were made. Few pieces survived, which makes each piece a real treasure to find.

It is in very good overall condition as you can see in the photographs, with normal signs of use from the decades. The bamboo inlay does have some texture to it when felt with the hand, which I believe to be consistent with other pieces from the series.

Measures 19 1/4″ wide and 1 1/4″ tall.
