Italian Chrome and Ceramic Tile Top Coffee Table, Signed, circa 1960Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Beautifully crafted chrome and ceramic tile coffee table, circa 1960, Italy. This slenderly proportioned cocktail table features an eye catching top decorated using square indigo tiles with a subtle ombre effect. These tiles have been embellished with a ceramic glaze, creating an abstract design made up of various shapes and forms. These adornments consist of shades of bright orange, red, black, blue and white. The blue are white segments are punctuated with contrasting dots of indigo which adds variation and interest to the overall design. The tiled surface is encased in chrome and is supported by a chrome and walnut base. The artist's signature can be found on the bottom right corner of the piece.
