Surrealist Carved Wood Double Hands Coffee Table, circa 1970s



This incredible surreal carved wood coffee table was crafted in circa 1970s in the style of Pedro Pedro Friedeberg. The table features two partially cupped hands which hold the glass top, beautiful subtle details making the hands look real - such as the veins, knuckles, fingernails, and joints. This sculptural surrealist table would work great in a Post-Modern, Mid-Century Modern, Space Age Mod, Scandanavian Modern or Danish Modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a Contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a Traditional, Transitional, Hollywood Regency, Classical or Art Deco room with a splash of surrealism and juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS: Table Base: H 15.5" x W 39.25" x D 14.5" Glass is W 46" x D 19" x .25" thick CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with light wear, age and patina.

Stable, sturdy and sound, ready for immediate use.
