Pelican Table 1940
The only known version of the Pelican Table was displayed with two Pelican Chairs at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1940. As far as we know, it was never produced again. Both the Pelican Chair and the Pelican Table are exceptional examples of Finn Juhl’s spiritual kinship with modern art. He handpicked particular artifacts, which were exhibited together with his furniture at the exhibition.
About the Pelican Table
No drawings of the table exist - only a photograph of the table from the exhibition together with two Pelican Chairs. When the original table suddenly reappeared at an auction in Paris almost 75 years later, the accurate dimensions and measurements of the table could finally be determined.
Today, the Pelican Table is manufactured in oak, walnut, Oregon pine or black painted.
