Poul Volther teak hall chest for Munch Mobelfabrik late 1950s.
Poul Volther teak hall chest for Munch Mobelfabrik late 1950s . Stamped for Munch of Slagelse in Denmark to the back this lovely teak chest on oak base was apparently designed in 1957 . This handle design is usually described as being a Poul Volther design , but there is also an attribution to the less well known Carl Aage Skov . There is a later version of this chest on removeable teak legs without the cross supports that join the leg on this particular one . Even in the early 1960s some Danish makers were looking for ways of cutting costs by having legs that unscrew rather than fixed ones with stretchers . So much nicer to have the early model .
We’ve given it a light clean and oiled it , and it’s looking tip top . There is one very small mark to the top , but then it’s nearly 60 years old , so can be forgiven a very slight sign of useage .
Munch of Slagelse are best known for their chairs , but at this date they were also very good quality cabinet makers .
