Scandinavian Verre Églomisé Round Floral Painted Coffee, circa 1940Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Extensively detailed, large and expansive Scandinavian verre églomisé coffee table supported by sculptural legs. The églomisé design is made applied onto the rear face of glass to produce a mirror finish. This includes an infusion of colors including light sage with golden tones punctuated by wisps of almost translucent stone blue, shades of coral that range from deep rouge to a delicate pink all bordered by a contrast charcoal black rim. Painted over the top of this composition of colors are fronds, foliage and flora each one exhibiting a slight difference in application. These elements are a blend of freehand and more regimented stencil-like designs.
This extraordinary table with it's unparalleled artistry would be an eye catching addition to any space and the grand scale allows for it to be a part of residential and commercial spaces alike. It would be a wonderful addition to a hospitality or corporate location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
