Pair 1960s Letter Trays Danish Modern Teak Wood By Rainbow, Denmark, Handcrafted:
Mid-Century Modern Danish TEAK Desk Furniture
VINTAGE 1960s or late ‘50s LETTER File Trays
PAIR of BENT TEAK WOOD LETTER / PAPER TRAYS by RAINBOW, DENMARK
A lovely set of 2 trays from the Atomic Age of design
Signed “MADE IN DENMARK for RAINBOW WOOD PRODUCTS, INC”.
A pair of pretty bent-ply letter trays in teak wood (or
maybe walnut, or rosewood?), designed & handcrafted by Rainbow, Denmark,
circa 1960s. They appear to be part of a set, perhaps complete, but missing a
dowel or rod that originally must have held them together, in a stacked
(perhaps stacked & turned) position. But it must have been meant to be used unassembled, also, because I’ve
seen these trays without any holes for such a rod. So it's convertible.
The wood has a lovely, rich tiger-stripe pattern. Despite its minor flaws, it is still a beautiful set that displays very nicely, & can be used. It would look fantastic on a vintage desk.
I’ve seen other similar products with almost the same maker’s mark, only made in Sweden. I’ve seen similar trays by a California brand.

Very Good. These were built to last!
The shorter tray has a small dent in the surface of its bottom surface. The bottoms of both have some white paint stuck to them – it is chalky & not oily. I was able to flake some off with my fingernail. There is some minor chipping of the veneer around the hole of the small tray, & on the very edges near the corner.
Both show signs of general use & wear –there are surface scratches, & water spotting. The water spotting can be seen in the photos –I zoomed in on it. It is on the raised back ledge of both, & most noticeably it is on the inside surface of the short tray.
There is a green felt pad stuck to one corner, & sticky residue left in the other corners from pads.
Longer Tray = 15 & ¼” x 9 & ¾” x 1 & ¾”
Shorter Tray= 14 & 1/8” X 9 & ¾” x 1 & ¾”
