IMG_0838.JPG

Rare beech bentwood pier mirror and console stand. Excellent condition. The mirror has some minor oxidation to small areas to the lower side and top edges, but only adds character and confrims age and originality.

Bears the THONET label on the underside of the console shelf. 

 

Very stylish, scupltural item redolent of the Vienna Secession and art Art Nouveau period of design. The original 1904 Thonet catalogue described and illustrates it on page 77. See images here. It was one of the more expensive items offered, and mainly made to order. Mirror glass was never supplied by Thonet and would have been provided by a contemporaneous glass manufacturer and fitted by the furniture seller before supplying the customer. .
