Cherry wood, brass. Original brass key designed by Josef Frank.
Provenance: Bo and Kerstin Pfannenstill Thence by descent
The cabinet was acquired around the middle of the 1930s when Bo and Kerstin Pfannenstill moved into a functional apartment in Kolgahuset by the harbor in Malmö. They decorated their apartment almost exclusively with furniture from Svenskt Tenn. Bo Pfannenstill's aunt was Josef Frank's wife Anna Frank (1880-1957). The cabinet is probably a special order for the family and was never put into production. Preserved original drawings are in Svenskt Tenn's archive and the text for these reads: "Linen cabinet, cherry 147 x 55 x 112 cm". There are two drawings in the archive and these differ slightly only in dimensions.
