I have recently started research about Saarinen?s dining table. I am overwhelmed to say the least. I recently looked at a table at a vintage modern store. It is described as ?EERO SAARINEN FOR KNOLL TEAK TULIP DINING TABLE? with the price tag of $2800. Here is where I?m confused: it has a Knoll sticker, with a 1960 stamp, but the address on the sticker isn?t this same as Knoll stickers I have seen on the internet. Address is 745 Park Avenue and I?ve seen 320 Park Avenue on other vintage Knoll stickers. The base has visible screws. The top of the base doesn?t directly attach to the table top. There is a round barrier between the two. The edge of the base was bumpy. I have read that the base directly attaches to the top of an authentic piece. I was slightly interested in this table until I did a bit of research. Why does this table, in one way, not fit the criteria of an authentic Saarinen but has a Knoll sticker?
