Peter Hvidt Coffee and End Tables

Best thing I have bought in the past while are a France and Co coffee and end table set. Each piece has a stamp/disc underneath, signifying that it is made/sold by France and Co. The design is by Peter Hvidt, a very well known Danish furniture designer, circa approx 1959-1962.

The coffee table has an ebonized draw leaf and the end tables have thin but full drawers.
The Pictures below are NOT of my set, but a very close approximation of mine. The same curled up ends, the same finger joint leg/frame connections, the same material (I assume it is rosewood)

There are minor scuffing to the legs, and a couple of minor dings on the tops. They are presently being shown in my booth in the Stratford (Ontario) Antique Warehouse for $1650.00 Cdn.

Pictures will be coming..
