Q: just bought a circa 1960 rosewood credenza, w/ top and bottom sections. I noticed that the inner shelves appear to be particle board, and the glass doors fit into plastic sliders in the top section. I realize these materials were used in the 60's, but was surprised to see them with rosewood. The piece is not signed, but does have a tag that says "Danish control." Any info on this construction/age issue?
