Outstanding Finn Juhl Rosewood and Silver Inlay “Judas” Extension Dining Table, Newly Restored


An extremely rare and exceptional mid-century Danish Modern “Judas” extension dining table.

The table features an expandable oval top in stunning book-matched Brazilian rosewood, with round silver inlays, floating on a sculptural base with tapered solid rosewood legs. Made in Denmark, circa 1950s.

Branded manufacturer’s mark to underside: “Cabinetmaker Niels Vodder, Copenhagen Denmark, Design: Finn Juhl.”

Measures: 71″W x 47.25″D x 28.25″H. Extends up to 114.5″W with two 21.75″ leaves.

Professionally restored. Excellent condition.

Along with Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen and Børge Mogensen, Finn Juhl was one of the great masters of mid-20th-century Danish design. Juhl was the first among that group to have his work promoted overseas, bringing the character of the nation’s furnishings — and the inherent principles of grace, craftsmanship and utility on which they were based — to an international audience. A stylistic maverick, Juhl embraced expressive, free-flowing shapes in chair and sofa designs much earlier than his colleagues, yet even his quietest pieces incorporate supple, curving forms that are at once elegant and ergonomic.

Juhl quickly won a following for such signature designs as the supremely comfortable Chieftan lounge chair, the biomorphic Baker sofa, and this Judas table, ornamented with stylish inlaid silver plaquettes.
