Machine Age Art Deco Norman Bel Geddes for Simmons Exposition Yellow Suite

About

Bona Fide Original Norman Bel Geddes for Simmons Exposition Yellow Suite The Simmons stuff is always out there in Abundance. 90% + are not Bel Geddes designs, it's just functional in-house institutional mass-production goods. Frequently stripped to bare-metal for that "whatever" look. Here's the real deal from early/mid-1930s, with the rare Bauhaus-influenced 1929-1932 signed small bench you rarely see and the matching signed side chair for the set. The original mirror, of course, is an iconic skyscraper piece on it's own. Vanity tagged in drawer. Totally untouched original set, with new leather on the stool and chair. Functional as desk or writing table with chair. Please see "The Machine Age in America", page 312/13 for a partial Museum example.
