Original Production John Dickinson Galvanized Steel Drape End Table, Signed

$23,500

About

This exceptionally rare and high-sought after collectors item is the John Dickinson model #107 drape end table with trompe-l'œil fabric motif in galvanized steel and brass binding. This piece of functional fine art is suited for a design collector, art investor or an interior designer looking to impress a hard-to-please client who wants nothing but the best of the best. This iconic 1970s American design by John Dickinson was later produced by Sutherland, and even the Sutherland examples have great worth and collectibility. But nothing compares to the originals, like this one. An interior steel frame with adjustable feet gives this table ample sturdiness and is suited for regular every-day use - but can also be used as an impressive stand-alone sculpture. Original John Dickinson pieces are exceptionally hard to find. This example of the galvanized steel trompe l'oeil draped tablecloth table is signed with a brass plaque on the lower front etched with John Dickinson's signature and the production number in Roman numerals. Get this rarity of modern design history before your competition does. MEASUREMENTS: H 24 x W 28.5" x D 28.5" CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with light patina and wear. One corner with further oxidation, see photos. Some rub marks and age related wear. Overall excellent collectors example, sturdy and sound, ready for immediate use.
