Beautiful maple credenza by Florence Knoll (1917-). Florence Schust-Knoll grew up in Michigan and became an orphan when she was still a child. She studied at the Cranbrook Academy of Art and became close friends with Eliel Saarinen (her teacher) and his son Eero. In 1946 she married Hans Knoll and they worked together until 1955 when Hans died. She continued as president of Knoll until 1960 and retired in 1965. This credenza is in beautiful condition and was manufactured between 1941 and 1950. The typical leather handles have a perfect patina. Inside the credenza there are 1 drawer and 2 shelves. Knoll sticker still present. I love the mix of the maple wood, the vegetable cloth, the leather and the metal black feet. If you are looking for an elegant piece of furniture to put in your dining room or anywhere else, take your chance!
