From the late 19th century, a pair of baluster shaped vases with a fluted lip. The Imari colour scheme with it’s mix of reds, blues and whites, looks just as elegant today as it did 100 years ago. In that former world without planes or even cars.
18 cm diameter and 36 cm high.
A comfortable foam filled couch and two armchairs in excellent well maintained condition. Fabric of this quality would normally retail for over $3,500 when new. Lovingly cared for, it now presents an excellent buying opportunity.
Couch 200cm wide x 90 cm deep and 95 cm high.
We are unable to attribute this pair of bakelite and chrome chairs to any designer. The screws would suggest pre 1960 and the bakelite colour post 1910. We have seen a similar 1920 example by Rene Herbst presently for sale in France that includes some duplicated structural elements in the design. However that one uses a cantilever frame. Also trying to work out the intended purpose of that large hook under the seat!
May we would like to take this opportunity to thank the many knowledgeable readers out there that share their learning and experience to help us solve these little mysteries.
44 cm wide x 50 cm deep x 80 cm high.
