Sheaf of Wheat Table

We have had a nice selection of  wheat sheaf tables (made iconic by Coco Chanel and as seen in her Rue Cambon apartment above) over the years, and posted one recently.  They are all slightly different and this one also has an extra little bundle of wheat in the center.  It has a beautifully toned gold finish, a substantial, well-crafted bundle and a rope tie. 36" diam., 18" h.  Italian, c. 1950's  SOLD

Curtis Jere Bridge Sculpture

San Francisco.  Open your Golden Gate.  Don't wait, this exceptional and impressive Golden Gate Bridge wall sculpture by Curtis Jere has just arrived in the shop and it's a beauty.  It's almost 5 ft. long, signed and dated, and depicts the Golden Gate with a large ship and five sailboats in front of a smaller bridge as well as a group of seagulls.  57" l., 27" h., 8" d.  American, c. 1985  $695.00

Brasilia by Broyhill, Tall Chest

The Brasilia Collection was first introduced by Broyhill at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair.  The collection was inspired by Brasilia, the newly erected capital city of Brazil.  The thoroughly modern city of Brasilia, with its buildings of abstract forms and curves, owes it's design and architecture in large part to architect Oscar Niemeyer.  The inspiration of his distinctive forms is quite apparent in the architecture of Broyhill's Brasilia Collection.  We've had a number of pieces from the collection over the years.  This is a great one.  This chest has two doors which open to a divided compartment with two shelves on the left and four drawers on the right.  Below are two full length drawers.  50" h., 44" w., 19" d.  American, c. 1963  $950.00

Lightolier Chandelier

Stylish 1970's, five-arm, wood, brass and glass dome chandelier by Lightolier.  We've seen this chandelier attributed to Gaetano Sciolari.  While he did work with Lightolier, we can't say for sure it is one of his designs.  23" diam., 21" h.  American, c. 1970's  $395.00

Erwin-Lambeth for John Stuart, Sofa

This is an 8.75 foot '10'!  Our sofa selections seem to be pretty popular lately and this one is exceptional.  It makes sense, if you've looked at buying a great quality new sofa lately.  For a new sofa of this quality, you are likely to pay between six and ten thousand dollars.  Even for the same quality vintage sofa, that seems the norm.  This curved-back sofa by Erwin-Lambeth for John Stuart retains its original cream upholstery which is in near mint vintage condition.  It is long and luxurious and very comfortable.  The frame is solid wood and the cushions are down filled.  105" l., 37" d., 24" h.  American, c. 1960's  SOLD
