Vintage Nipu File Cabinet Credenza Sideboard with Tambour Doors, Danish Modern Style, 1958 Mid Century


Shipping to United States: Free

This is a vintage, circa: 1958, NIPU Tambour Door filing cabinet-credenza. It measures about 51" long (across top) 18.5" deep and 27" tall. Across the front of the cabinets/doors its about 39.625". It has five hard plastic sliding drawers on one side and 2 wooden shelves on the other.

Not sure if the wooden shelves are original and it's missing some green drawers, there are other slots for more shelves on the shelf side.

Cosmetically it is nice overall, but does show some normal wear to sides and top with light scratches and rub marks etc.

The worst problem is UNDERNEATH on the left bottom side/edge, it looks like some water got to it and has warped the BOTTOM piece along the edge (see 5th picture top image). It is not noticeable unless you turn it upside down and look at it. Along the left black tapered foot on bottom the front part of it has some paint loss/scratching on both sides (see 5th picture 2nd image). The "feet" are one piece front to back on left and right and tapered to bottoms.

It takes an old cabinet key to open it (which I have) and then you can slide doors down, it will not open without a key, it does close without a key though.
 It has the metal tab piece at right end (see 4th picture) that I assume is there to connect other NIPU furniture, it can be removed easily, there are screws holding it in on underside.

The label and signature (see 5th picture 3rd image) is in good condition and is located on the underside of the top tail piece on right side.
