Art Deco Machine Age Streamline Moderne Table Desk by Royal Metal Manufacturing

About

Handsome Art Deco, Machine Age, streamline moderne, or art moderne hall table or small desk by Royal Metal Manufacturing. This piece is in wonderful vintage condition but not without normal nicks and dings you would expect for its age to the original gray paint and brushed steel legs. The woodgrain laminate top is in fabulous condition as is the aluminum face trim of the top, circa 1930s-1950s. This could be a writing desk. This could be a hall table. This could be a make-up vanity. It could be called Art Deco, Machine Age, Streamline Modern, Art Moderne, or even Mid-Century Modern. We hope you will call it yours. Comprised of a gray painted steel rectangular body with a center drawer held up by square tubular steel legs with a brushed finish and topped by an aluminum trimmed wood grained plastic laminate top. It retains its original Royal Metal Manufacturing oval tag. Most likely made for their Royalchrome, aka Royal Chrome, line. Royal Metal Co. started in business in 1897. In 1921 they were purchased by Heywood Wakefield but continued manufacturing under the Royal Metal Co. name. They employed some of the great machine age designers, KEM Weber, Donald Deskey, and Alfons Bach. This is a design classic and blends with many décor styles from industrial to mid-century modern. It is timeless and wonderful, and you should own it.
