Vintage Hans Olsen mid century modern teak desk circa 1960. Clean and classic Danish design with 3 drawers, 18" drop leaf, and distinctively tapered stretchers. Excellent original condition. Measures 51" wide with the leaf dropped, 68" wide with the leaf raised, 29" high, and 27.75" deep. Hans Olsen (1919–1992) was a Danish furniture designer who created a number of items in his own unique style. Although Olsen was a student of Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy's Furniture School from 1941 to 1943, he belongs to a group of Danish furniture designers who chose to experiment with both form and materials. In 1953, he set up his own studio where he designed and produced a series of exciting pieces in a distinctive style, exhibiting them at the annual fairs of the Cabinetmakers Guild in Copenhagen. One of his most notable designs is the Bikini Chair (1968) which, like other chairs from his studio, was crafted of bent laminated wood. Though he was not one of the mainstream Danish modern school, he designed a range of items for furniture manufacturers including Bramin Møbler, Juul Kristensen, C.S. Møbler and Frem Røjle.

I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
