Arne Jacobsen, attributed
(b. Copenhagen 1902, d. s.p. 1971)

In 1933–1934, Arne Jacobsen was in charge of the design of a nordic funkis villa and interior in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen, for Novo founder Thorvald Petersen. Photos of the elm wood interior show a very similar triptych picture frame. We assume that the present mirror originates from the same interior.
