Shellwork Side Table by J. Antony Redmile

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

In the Louis XV taste, with four cabriole legs and a central shaped stretcher supporting a rectangular top encrusted throughout with Tiger Cowrie (Cypraea tigris), Margin Cowrie (Zoila marginata) and Scallops (Pecten Raveneli), Giant Clam (Tridacna gigas) and various other species.

An early tour-de-force from the Redmile workshops, this is the flamboyant furniture designer working at his best. Whilst the company continues to operate - albeit under a misspelt name - there is precious little information about the man himself. He retailed his creations from 73 Pimlico Road (London) and works appear on the market world-wide, showing a reach unlike other designers of the 1970s-1980s,

England, circa 1980
