Does this attribution seem right (Vodder desk)?

I have a chance to buy a desk just like this one, but I question whether it is really a Vodder design? I don't see it in the furnitureindex, although he designed a lot of desks there. Has anyone seen this desk before to confirm or deny its heritage?

Does this attribution seem right (Vodder desk)?

The desk attribution might have come from the drawer details of this sideboard/credenza.

It is a good looking desk even without a designer attribution.

Image is from Cara Greenberg's book 'Mid-Century Modern' from 1984.

Morning all,

Came across the following images; unfortunately no labels!

Skeie mobelfabrik, Norway.

I have seen a set of their drawers in person and the drawer fronts are the same.

Hope this helps,

Thanks very much for the responses. Thanks Lexi - I never thought I'd know who made it if it wasn't by Vodder. This seems to be another case of a firstdibs dealer getting a bit ahead of themselves in making attributions. I do like the desk, and its a nice small size, so I may pick it up anyway (though it may need more work than its worth). Thanks again!

You are welcome.

One more image of the same desk in rosewood, which I must say is lovely!
