Made in the early 1940's in France this piece has a design which is reminding of Groult or Maurice Dufrene .It was said about French Art deco that : ...the absence of ornaments are replaced with the choice of magnificent materiel and outstanding proportion ... Most likely it is one of a kind because such details were rarely mass produced . The detailing is indicative of a good provenance ,the mounting of the legs is something you do not find anymore in our cost saving era .The Ebonized oak body was recently refinished , you can still see the grain of the wood . The inlay is embossed leather with shagreen motive .
Size H.23 1/2 x D19 1/2 .recently refinished , good antique condition.
