Vintage Kai Kristiansen Teak Bow Front Tray Top Bookshelf / Bar Front Desk

Rarely do I find a desk of this vintage in such outstanding condition. Desks get used; a lot. This one, another new arrival to the U.S., seems to be frozen in the 1950’s with very little signs of wear. Pulled directly from a Danish estate this Kai Kristiansen Bow front floating tray top desk is in a class of it’s own. No chips or nicks on the tray. Drop down bar front with mirror back and drop down storage cabinet with two drawers add to the overwhelming awesomeness of this desk. Six drawers; two with keyed locks.
