Description Uncommon and early Florence Knoll Credenza (1947) featuring a birch cabinet, stained mahogany base, and grasscloth-wrapped doors, which slide open to reveal three wooden shelves to the left and two plate glass shelves to the right. Dramatic lines enhanced by sculpted, splayed legs, which add nice contrast to an otherwise organic form.
Interior components and leather pulls are all original and show wear (fissures / fleabites present to glass shelves, which can be arranged to mask these flaws, so that the wear is contained to the underside and back). Lovely patina to the leather and paint losses to the interior (white paint is original and is presented, accordingly). Birch has been newly refinished and grasscloth doors have been fully restored to ensure longevity. The stained mahogany base is completely original with only light wear, as shown.
Measures: H 32.5" x D 14.875" x L 72"
There are four sections in total - one with two wooden shelves, one with a single wooden shelf, one with two glass shelves, and an open storage section. The orientation of all sections with shelves can be changed, as the shelves are all removable and the same dimensions. The interior sections all measure: H 16" x D 11.5" x L 16.75"
