Oval Table

Oval Table


Table 338.

Designed as part of a series of  extending oval tables in 1962 for Andreas Tuck, table CH338 was added to the collection of Wegner designs produced by  Cal Hansen and Søn in 2011. Equipped with extension rails to accommodate  up to two 60 cm extension leaves the CH338 oval table is an excellent choice for entertaining from up to a maximum of 14 place settings.

The Wishbone chair produced by the Company since 1950 is one of many perfect choices for use around table CH338.

Elvind Kold Christensen. Christensen was an entrepreneur and

salesman who dissatisfied with the quality of the furniture he was selling was inspired on seeing the Round Chair in 1949 introduced the young designer to five furniture producers who could produce furniture designed for mass production without compromising the quality of the furniture including table producer Andreas Tuck.

Together they formed SALESCO comprising of Carl Hansen & Son who produced chairs, Getama upholstered furniture with timber frames, the upholsterer A. P. Stolen, Ry Møbler makers of storage units and Andreas Tuck the original producer of table CH338.

SALESCO played a pivitol role in promoting Wegner and Danish design to an international audience only sold Wegner designs throughout the 1950’s and 60’s. The co-operation began with Wegner designing the then low cost, beautifully designed Wishbone or Y Chair for Carl Hansen and Søn.
