The Art Deco period is probably one of the most iconic design movements of the 20th Century. Associated with both luxury and modernity, there's no wonder this style has had such a huge impact since being first introduced in the 1920s.
This striking sideboard is sure to look great in any home, becoming the focal point of any room.
Designed and made by P.E. Gane of Bristol, a company that was once considered to produce furniture of the highest quality and exhibited its designs in the Great Exhibition in 1851, later selling through esteemed retail outlets such as Heals.
In the 1930s the Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer was employed by the company, his influence seen heavily here with this particular piece. The cupboard unit almost floats above stepped square legs, the oversized inset disc handles giving the piece a unique elegance.
Seemingly quite rare, pieces produced by P.E. Gane are now scarcely available for sale.
Although in general nice condition it is not without fault and features some chips, marks, watermarks and dints along with some rippling of the birch veneer to the top of the cabinet, as photographed.
Measures approximately 137.5cm long, 45.5cm wide and 94cm tall.
