Vintage Danish Mid-century Modern "fabian" Teak Coffee Table/bench:
I inherited the contents of my parent's Brooklyn Heights estate a number of years ago. Itrepresented over 90 years of eclectic collecting from my grandparents and aunt to my parents. I have been selling their jewelry,decorativesand art collections for a few years and will continue to do so but now we are moving and downsizing. In the next few weeks I will be listing some fine Fantoni, Gambine, Capron and Ackermanpieces, mid-century Italian glass, lighting,victorian, art deco and mid-centurydecoratives and some exceptional pieces like an Osvaldo Borsoni dining room table, Saarinen chairs for Knoll, Milo Baughman and more. I have had the great pleasure of living with and enjoying these pieces over the years.
I grew up with this teak bench or coffee table. It is stamped on the back "Fabian" Made in Denmark. It is indecent vintage condition. The top isbeautiful and unmarked but the legs show some wear and probably a good cleaning withteak oil will spruce up the table beautifully. However, on one corner there is a chip at the edge (see photo) andif you turnthe table around there is a smallcrack on another edge. There are 3 cushions with zippers. The cushions are in excellent condition. I don't think they are leather but it is hard for me to tell. The legs could usetigthening for there issmall movement when you sit or shake it.
Bottom line is that this signed teakbenchhas great style (I prefer it as a coffee table) but needs some work.
Measurements: 61 1/2" long x 19 1/2" wide x 15 1/2" high. The lip around the bench is 1 1/2". The cushions are 19 1/2" x 21
LOCAL PICK-UP IS WELCOME.
