Andreas Tuck Odense; Andreas Tuck; 1952, dimensions 31x22cm, Danish language;
Rare catalogue from 1952 of furniture made in the workshops of Andreas Tuck,
Odense celebrating 50 years of the company. One copy in the Danish Union and
Danish National Biography Catalogue no others registered anywhere and no other
Tuck catalogues registered.
Contains the works of Hans Wegner (13 plates), Fritz Henningsen (17 plates)
and factory designs (8 Plates). It dates pretty well the shift from a more
traditional classical carpentry achieved by Fritz Henningsen who seems to have
a repertoire of styles from Scandinavia through to England and Austria to Hans
Wenger's more organic designs in Oak which we would now associate with Danish
Modern. Hardback, green ring folder. Gilt title to spine. Text in Danish. Price
list and dimensions of furniture to rear of catalogue.
Condition: Complete with all pages. A few marks to rear cover. Rings are rusty
which has transferred on to the plates a little round the punch holes and the
title page is loose.
Desthetica is a portmanteau of design and aesthetics and the stock consists of
design reference works from all over the world with an emphasis on Scandinavian
and Italian 20th century design and English interwar and post-war Design. Their
primary use is the attribution of objects to designers and manufacturers.
