An extremely rare and collectible Danish low credenza /sideboard by Bodil Kjaer for E. Pedersen & Søn in Brazilian Rosewood. Three sliding doors reveal the contrasting interior and shelving finished in a contrasting oak with an adjustable shelve behind the middle door. This piece is evenly finished in the same high-quality wood & veneer at the back to serve as a floating piece of art or room divider. The square handles and original polished steel legs add a modernist flair to this piece.
Pieces by E. Pedersen & Søn and specifically this sideboard have a great track record for holding its value and therefore is a good investment piece. Typically these sideboards do not sell for less than $6000, but more in the region of $7000 to $10 000.
The Brazilian Rosewood veneer has been restored to reveal the beauty of the grain. The sideboard is in overall great condition. The original keyhole covers are intact where the locks were placed which makes for easy open & close sliding of the doors. The sideboard does not have locks.

As with most Mid-Century pieces, it is a good combination of solid wood and a high-quality wood veneer. The quality, old veneer was long-lasting and for this reason, it can be retouched or sanded and refinished. The history of veneer on furniture is a long and honorable tradition, and it depends on the workmanship, condition and thickness of the veneer itself.
