Pair of Art Deco Bookmatched Amboyna & Burled Elm Nightstands with Cubist Detail

$12,475per set


This elegant pair of Art Deco cubist skyscraper style nightstands were custom designed for Mr. Roger Sperry (American neuropsychologist, neurobiologist and Nobel laureate) and his wife in the United States in 1930 by the esteemed Henry Gercken. They feature bookmatched amboyna bodies with faceted corners composed of geometric cubist marquetry in amboyna and carpathian elm. Additionally, the piece offers a black lacquer base and feet; conical black lacquer pulls; and lacquer detailing throughout. With their refined palate and clean modernist lines, these nightstands would be a winning addition to any style of interior from Classic Art Deco to contemporary. They retain their original brass plaque on the back reading "Made for Mrs. Roger Sperry Waterbury Conn. Arthur Eisemann & Co. New York City Designed by Henry Gercken Nov. 20 - Dec. 20 1930". Mint restored condition. American, 1930. Dimensions: 17.5 D x 17.25 W x 29.5" H.
