Birthday orgy of thrifting finds a Fritz Hansen (Status:Maybe I need to TABLE the thrifting)

As part of the BOoT (Birthday Orgy of Thrifting), I drove up to the Findlay Ohio Antique mall where I made a surprising score of this nice Fritz Hansen folding tray table!
I say that it was a surprising find because there is rarely any mid mod furniture in this antique mall.
Anyway, This table was designed in 1957 by H. Engholm and Sven Aage for Fritz Hansen.  The price was not "thrift store" but quite friendly for reselling (I'll have it at the cincinnati modern show).
 The table has this spidery, ebonized base
 With this teak, saucer-like top.  The top needs a little attention; maybe a light sand, some Danish oil treatment or teak oil.
There is the underside with...
The Fritz Hansen markings.  What's super cool about this piece is that...
Two of the legs fold in
Using the neat hinges and...
The whole thing folds flat for easy storage!
