    The present lot was acquired by Marshall David Landis on one of his buying trips to Denmark during the 1950s. Landis, a Los Angeles based decorator and interior designer, is credited with being one of the earliest importers of Scandinavian furniture and decorative arts into the United States, and in doing so pioneered America's taste for Scandinavian design.
