Rare Pair of Salvador Dali Tile Side Tables

$12,500per set


French art collector Maurice Duchin commissioned Dali to design six decorative tiles in 1953. 800 hand-painted sets were produced, all hand signed by Dali. Of these, 100 sets were reserved to be sold as table-tops on painted iron frames. We have a pair of tables which each hold a complete set of tiles. The tiles rest in place, but are removable. Each tile signed 'Dali' on the face, and stamped "1954 Maurice Duchin" on the back. Each tile measures 8" square. These tiles were reissued in limited quantities in both 1964 and 1990, but these sets are from the original 1954 production. Price is for the pair.

About the Designer

Salvador Dalí­

Instantly recognizable by his waxed, upturned mustache, the flamboyant Salvador Dalí (1904–89) is one of modern art’s most distinctive figures. He is also one of the icons of the 20-century avant-garde Surrealist movement, whose dreamlike images, drawn from the depths of the unconscious, he deployed in paintings, sculptures, prints and fashion, as well as in film collaborations with Luis Buñuel and Alfred Hitchcock.Dalí was born in Figueres, Catalonia, and even as a youngster, displayed the sensitivity, sharp perception and vivid imagination that would later define his artworks. In these, he conjured childhood memories and employed religious symbols and Freudian imagery like staircases, keys and dripping candles to create unexpected, often shocking pieces.His use of hyperrealism in conveying Surrealist symbols and concepts that subvert accepted notions of reality is epitomized in what is perhaps his most recognizable painting, The Persistence of Memory (1931), in which he depicts the fluidity of time through melting clocks, their forms inspired by Camembert cheese melting in the sun. Dalí’s artistic genius, eccentric personality and eternal quest for fame made him a global celebrity. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.”Find Salvador Dalí prints, sculptures and other works on 1stDibs.
