Bath Cabinet Makers late 1960s teak ” Mogens Kold ” sideboard
We’ve written a blog about how this model keeps appearing on Ebay and other sites described as being by Mogens Kold of Denmark . Firstly we’ve had it before with a Bath Cabinet Makers label on it , secondly it’s illustrated in their catalogue dating to c 1968 that we have in our collection . Thirdly although it’s nice enough quality , it’s not in the same league as Mogens Kold pieces and looks nothing like anything we’ve seen by them , which is virtually always either fully labelled or stamped somewhere .
Luckily for potential buyers nobody seems to be asking a Mogens Kold price for them , but we’re bewildered as to how the story first started .
If you’re wanting a well made British teak sideboard with a quirkiness to the design then it offers good value for money .
It’s in good vintage condition with no obvious bad damage or heat/ring marks , nor unequal fading . There are small scratches and signs of use after almost 50 years . It’s got a typical late 1960s varnished finish to it , which with some work can be stripped and removed , and then it can be oiled and given a more natural finish if required .
It’s 198cms long ( 6ft 6 ” , so a typical British size , a Danish one would be 200 or 210cms usually )
