Art Deco Machine Age Aluminum and Inlaid Micarta Bar Tray by George Switzer

About

This refined and handsome Art Deco bar tray was realized by George Switzer for Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing in the United States, circa 1935. It features a polished aluminum body with streamlined handles, and an inlaid micarta center composed of bands of tiger orange framing a black band of the same width bordered by stripes of polished aluminum. A stylized crescent moon and star floating above an abstracted rendering of a sailboat sit in the central black channel, executed in inlaid micarta. This piece embodies the qualities that discerning collectors of fine Art Deco objects adore. Clean, perennially modern and aesthetically captivating, this piece is not only a perfectly functional bar tray, but an objet d'art in its own right. It would be a winning addition to any style of interior from Classic Art Deco to contemporary. An example of this piece is part of the permanent collection and displayed in the Yale Museum of Art. Very good vintage condition. American, circa 1935 Dimensions: 17.75" W x 12.5" D x 1" H.
