Early 1960s Danish teak nesting tables Erling Torvits for Heltborg Mobler
Lovely stylish nest of tables which we’ve cleaned and oiled and fully restored , which has included re-gluing some joints , so they’re now back in fantastic condition . Original glues on chairs and tables often dry out slightly over the years , so it’s something we check for when cleaning pieces , and when needed we re-glue them properly which does take time .
Heltborg Mobler seemed to have specialised in nesting tables and coffee tables as we’ve had a few different models made by them over the years . As a bit of a niche maker of such tables you can be sure that the quality is excellent .
We’ve written a short blog on the little known Danish designer Erling Torvits which you can find on this website along with others we hope you will find of interest . We are always looking for information and are constantly spending time on research of the history of Mid 20th Century design .
As you’ll see they’re beautifully branded with the makers name , so they were obviously proud to attach it in such a manner .
You do have to expect very minors signs of wear after over 50 years of use , even with restored pieces like these , but they will be extremely small and only noticeable on very close inspection !
