*Bruno Mathsson Book Crib Notes:
Bruno Mathsson rare vintage “Book Crib,” design for Karl Mathsson, 1941.
Very special item.  Petite book holder composed of blond curved legs supporting triangular shelving box.
Heat and moisture used to bend solid birch legs in typical Mathsson fashion with charming triangular box with inset dividers screwed to legs.
Unique design concept pictured in Mathsson's summer home paired with two others atop another long table with similar legs in order to variously present books otherwise neatly stacked on same table surface.
Same versatile design also featured on floor near classic Mathsson bent wood lounger in another house designed by Mathsson.
