These are a great pair of Danish Modern Teak trolls, ‘Optimist was designed by Hans Bolling, and made by Orskov & Co. Denmark circa 1950’s and the monkey has not any signature.

Both made out of teak, with rope arms and rabbit fur hair and painted eyes. Designed by the renowned Danish architect Hans Bolling, famous for his iconic mid century wooden figures such as this optimist.

Stunning mid century Danish modern design classic, so reminiscent of the era, their small size would make them perfect to accessorise and add some fun character to a desk, mantelpiece or shelf.

Would make a stunning addition to any Danish or Scandinavian Teak collection, and would complement any mid century modern, retro, vintage, 60’s, kitsch or contemporary styled interior.

In good condition, some thinning and age showing to the rabbit fur hair, nothing to detract on display, the wood has a lovely patina

-In good vintage condition, his wooden feet have dark stain areas to the wood and his hair is yellowed and a bit dirty looking which is consistent with age

Good vintage condition with traces of age and wear.
