Large 48" Rare Odyssey Cocktail Table by Philip and Kelvin Laverne, circa 1960s

About

This is a rare and large 47.25 inch Odyssey cocktail table by father and son team, Philip and Kelvin LaVerne, produced in the 1960s. Ingeniously designed with acid etching and patinated polychrome bronze and pewter, this circular coffee table features a scalloped bronze base beneath a circular 1" thick top etched with Greek and Roman motifs. The "Odyssey" scene depicts Greek and Roman figures in a walled compound set amidst architecture, columns and urns. The clever use of contrasting surfaces and textures is most unusual and add dimension to the exotic scene. While size and rarity are generally the main driving force for value on Laverne's, Condition is also a large factor when valuating a Laverne piece. They are intentionally made to look aged however condition issues can affect the value if it detracts from the artistry of the work such as issues with enameling or patination. Therefore we recommend comparing condition when selecting a table for purchase. This particular example is in excellent condition with no issues or flaws. The polychrome finish is present, colors are bright and vivid, no structural issues and the table is stabile and sturdy. Slight wear is noticeable only upon close inspection. This is the nicest example of a Laverne that we've owned. We estimate this to be a 9 out of 10 in condition, with a 10 indicating it is brand new and never used. This was clearly a well cared for example and is a prime candidate for a collector or high value client. In addition, this is one of the more rare designs in both the fluted / scalloped base and Greek themed tops. Exceptional for the discriminating collector. The intricate craftsmanship of this eye-catching piece would be a great addition as part of a Classic, contemporary or Mid-Century Modern living room, den, man (or woman!) cave, family room, office or bedroom. It would also be an Apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium. We do have a Laverne dining table where the top could be swapped for this one. Contact us for details if you wish to have this table used as a dining table, or a game, cafe, breakfast or center table. Measurements: 17" height x 47.25" dia. x 1" thick (top).
