Two Important Italian Commodes or Chests of Drawers Circle of Gio Ponti

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare pair of Italian Mid-Century Modern chests of drawers or commodes in the circle of Gio Ponti.

The pieces are a mixture of exquisite form and subtle volumes suspended on tapered transparent brass tripod legs. They are composed of delicate oak veneers with the front of the cabinets specially cut back at the corners to form a hexagonal. This is mirrored by hexagonally cut and recessed door pulls.

Literature: Ponti created pieces in a similar style for Hotel Royal, Naples and Sorrento, Italy, 1954.

Priced and sold individually.
