h c andersen
i think you should check something about his papaer cuttings.he made lots of them and was really good at it.
im amazed about the desk which you found.i was in H C Andersen museum in odense in denmark and i havent seen anything about furniture made by him.

The desk IS NOT designed by the writer!!
Hi,
I think you misunderstood - the desk is not designed by the writer Hans Christian Andersen - :-)).

GUNNAR SCHWARTZ - LOS ANGELES TABLE
Hi again,
I think the table is by Rosengren Hansen, retailed by Gunnar Schwartz - late 50s early 60s.
I only found one site mentionning Gunnar Schwartz - unfortunately not your desk, but mybe it will lead you to more info:

What kind of information are you looking for?

Hi, 

I would like to know his history where he worked and perhaps a picture. I collect MCM furniture and I’m doing an album with all my favorite pieces.

That won't be easy. Hans C. Andersen was a lesser known architect (if he was an architect at all). As far as I know, he only worked for Artex, maybe he was the owner of Artex, but I've never even seen any information about this company either. If you can figure out where they had their workshop (you'll need danish sources), you have a clue where Hans C. Andersen was from. Then you can dive into archives and look for people named Hans C. Andersen who used to live in this region. You might be able to contact families. Would be a nice and rewarding task, but it's a long way which probably no one has walked yet.

@alex2018 Hey Alex, I just stumbled about some information. It‘s not much, but H.C. Andersen was indeed the owner of Artex, and he was not an architect but a cabinetmaker. One of many with a small company, he probably started his business in the 60s and was still active in the early 70s.

I just came across two Side tables in pretty much perfect condition designed by Hans for Artex. I have some one interested in purchasing. Everything I see is that they are rare and pretty valuable. Any advice on a fair price???
