Soaring Seagulls Dining Table by Adolfo Genovese

US$7,500

About

Italian American modernist design expandable round dining table by Adolfo Genovese of F. & G. Handmade Furniture Co. 121 First Street East Cambridge, MA. This table was made late 1940s-early 1950s. The base is a walnut N- or Z- form frame of three panels each having a lattice-like design of carved three-dimensional flock of seagulls in flight. Perfect not only for a beach house! The 52 inch diameter round two part top has a 2.5 inch flat edge apron all around and a very unusual grain of bird's eye figured walnut. The table expands to 88 inches long by 52 inches wide with two 18 inch leaves. Beautifully restored and ready to place. See image 12 for this table in its original home circa 1954. We also have the four F & G dining chairs shown in the photo (as well as the Finnish brass chandelier) to be listed separately. Founded in 1939 by Adolfo Genovese, F & G Handmade Furniture was the pre-eminent shop for fine custom furniture and cabinetry in Boston from WWII through the late 1970's. Their work consisted mainly of one off designs created often in consultation with the clients who included notable families as well as universities.
