Vintage from the 1960s
The Dansk Festivaal orange lacquer tray. 1960s rare Jens Harald Quistgaard serveware piece, with central circular teak endwood cutting board, encased in Danish maple bold orange lacquered tray to form the distinct eyeball shape.
A classic and hard to find vintage treasure. Highly sought after not just because of the bold midcentury Danish modern design of Jens Quistgaard, but because of the scarcity of this particular piece today. Because of the limited years they were manufactured (1959-1963) and the delicate nature of the lacquered Danish maple, few are to be had.
The platter measures approximately 18 3/4″ long x 14 7/8″ wide x 2″ high at each pointed end as the design gracefully curves upwards.
The piece is marked on the underside with “Dansk Denmark Designs IHQ”
This delicate vintage piece is in excellent used condition. There is a small crack in the lacquer where the central endwood cutting board is encased in the lacquer tray (a common area for this to occur in these pieces). This can be seen best in the last photo above. There are fairly light scratches and scuffs to face, edges and underside of the orange lacquer finish throughout. The teak cutting board is free of stains, and shows a bit of wear from use.
