Hello again from Austin!! Hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving and Holiday season!!
Now shop talk! I recently picked up this credenza from Houston along with some other items from an estate Auction that no one else seemed to know about. The credenza is 95 inches long and fit into my can by 1/4 inch. Lol. I’ve only been able to find one example on the interwebs. It is a 1stDibs listing attributing the piece to “Dyrlund”. I’ve never been much a fan of Dyrlund stuff as far as the late 60s and 70s pieces but being a newcomer to this, I haven’t run into earlier stuff by them. To me, this guy doesn’t really resemble what I’ve seen from them. Usually their stuff seems a tad clunky and boxy in design. Maybe I’m off and others feel differently. After all, that’s what makes this so much fun. It’s all so subjective!
This piece seems a little more sleek and aesthetically pleasing to me. Its obviously not the bees knees credenza but if it is by them, it might be my favorite I’ve seen by them. Was earlier Dyrlund more fluid in design? Is this Dyrlund at all? Did Dyrlund have specific designers or did they pump put factory pieces with no name attached? Sorry for all the questions. Just trying to learn!
Also, there is a repair on one of the handles that someone put a putty into and didn’t do much to hide it. I’m guessing I would smooth it out, fill in more, and try to make it a little more flush. Would I then purchase some teak veneer and cut a glue? Should I leave it to a professional?? Any help/answers are ALWAYS appreciated!!!
Cheers to all!!!
