The only known version of this table was shown together with the Pelican Chairs at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in 1940. As far as we know, it was never produced again. Both the Pelican Chair and the Pelican Table are exceptional examples of Juhl’s spiritual kinship with modern art. He hand-picked particular artifacts, which were exhibited together with his furniture at the exhibition.
No drawing of the table exists - only a photograph of the table from the exhibition together with the two Pelican Chairs. When the original table suddenly re-appeared at an auction in Paris almost 75 years later, the accurate dimensions and measurements of the table could finally be determined.
