Hans Wegner bookcase wall unit
A lovely vintage teak and oak bookcase wall unit produced in the early version where teak and oak is mixed.
This version was only available up until 1960

This system is extremely well built and brilliantly versatile. The impressive teak & oak unit is composed of a 2 door fronted base cabinet concealing 2 shelves and a bookcase top where all the shelves are adjustable.

The two sections marry perfectly although they could be split to be use separately. The top is fixed to the base cabinet with plates on the rear.

The shelves in the top part of the cabinet are all adjustable and made using solid block wood to prevent them from sagging under the weight of the objects you store.

Subtle details such as visible dowel joints, contrasting teak and oak and an elegant brass door catch/handle are signatures of Hans Wegner design
The brass handles Wegner used for this series are pulled sideways to unlatch the lock mechanism and open the doors.

Condition: superb with even oiled finish and wonderful warm patina.
Stamped to rear with RY makers mark and original factory paper label is inside.
