moreddi
moreddi shows up as a mark on a number of Danish teak items. Does anyone out there know if this is a designer, company, or importer?

I've come across the names Skovman and Anderson in relationship to the Moreddi mark...? any info would be helpful. Thanks

I was really hoping someone...
I was really hoping someone would reply to this thread too.

I recently acquired a beautiful dining table with hidden leaves that is stamped "Moreddi Danmark" with the great Moreddi crown logo. I have been unable to find any info about the company except examples of one other table and some chairs.

Can anyone enlighten us?

a little bit of info
All I know about Moreddi is that it is not a manufacturing company or a designer, but an import company. Moreddi was owned by the Frank Bros. (Morris & Eddie Frank) & they were among the very first to import Danish Modern into the States, they also helped to furnish many of the case study homes during that time.
Hope that helps!

I Know about Moreddi!
Hello!

I am Marni Frank. My Grandfather was Maury Frank who founded Moreddi with his Brother Ed Frank.

Moreddi was wholesale/import company that supplied furniture to their retail store, Frank Bros. Both companies were located in Long Beach Calif. Moreddi worked with a number of designers and manufacturers.

In the 1960's Frank Bros. & Moreddi split with Ron Frank (my father & Morry's son) taking over all of Frank Bros. & Ed Frank taking over all of Moreddi. Ed sold Moreddi in the early 1970's to DUX furniture.

Morry Frank died in early 1960. Ed Frank just passed away in 2005. My family still has the beautiful stamps that were used to mark the furniture they imported from Scandinavia.

If you are interested in more information I would be happy to hook you up with my father. He is always happy to talk to people about Moreddi, and so pleased people are still enjoying Moreddi furniture.

Marni (Frank) Good

Moreddi chairs
Hello, How are you? I have 4 chairs signed with a cross Two capitol MM's and the word Denmark in the under side. Is this indeed Moreddi's mark? If so what role did the dane's play and where there a # of designers? It's really something the accompanying table is a DUX. Thank you, Joan P.S. three stack and I adore them.

Moreddi Dining Set
I have dining set- table, four chairs with black leather seats,china cabinet, and server. On the underside of the chairs is a tag that says made by Moreddi, Inc. Should I look for a stamp somewhere? I am selling. They are in fair/good condition. What should I price the set at?

Moreddi stamp info
Hello Marni,
I have recently become interested in some chairs a shop owner claims are moreddi, although they do Not seem to bear the stamp. Does this mean they are definitely fake, or is there a possibility they are authentic? (ie, they had a tag originally not a stamp, or table only was stamped, etc). Any information would be appreciated.
Thank you

More Moreddi
I just got a Moreddi - Danmark stamped tray table that seems otherwise identical to the Fritz Hansen version except that mine does not fold. Any chance anyone knows if Moreddi got Fritz Hansen to produce some items for them to import?

TCHP -- I doubt your table...
TCHP -- I doubt your table is a Fritz Hansen piece. While beautiful, it's more of an homage to the Soren Hansen design. If you look closely, the FH version has more slender/flat pointy legs, comes to a more defined point where it holds the tray and doesn't bow out as much at the top.

Yes, I can see now that those details are different with the Fritz Hansen version.

Help identifying this set?
Hi - I purchased a Danish modern dining set off of Craiglist for a song and the previous owners knew that they were teak and from Denmark, but beyond that couldn't give us any other info.

Can anyone help me identify the chairs? The table is marked with labels that I didn't see originally - Domus Danica and Heltborg Mobler and I think it's by John Mortensen. Someone on another site said they think the whole set is teak, but the only tables like this with the same names are rosewood.

I'm pretty sure the chair on the right is from Moreddi by Johannes Andersen. The other 3 chairs are Moreddi (again, I missed those markings when I was first wondering about the pieces!), but I can't find any others like it online. Can anyone tell me more about the chairs? The legs of those 3 chairs do not have the elegant tapered legs of the 1st chair so I don't think they're from the same set. Now that I think about it, there are 3 different origins to this set. I've figured out 2 of them, I just need help with the last one.

RE: Info on Morredi / Frank Bros. ...
Hi Marni...I just recently came across your post on this forum while researching another Danish furniture manufacturer and was excited that a source of info exists for Morredi as it's a company I am currently researching. I've gone through the 'Finding Aids' for the Frank Bros. archives in the Getty but records are silent about any connection to Morredi... thus my enthusiasm to see your post. I would really welcome the chance to talk to you and your dad regarding Morredi's history. Best, chris kennedy
