American Art Deco Desk

Unique American Art Deco Desk Restored

Item #1868 SOLD

This is a very special american art deco desk. Indeed! It was my personal desk for the last 12 years and now that we have fully moved into our new showroom, I decided to have it restored and offer it for sale. I can't tell you how many times people asked me to sell this desk and up to know it was never available. This is a super desk, with lots of great mojo. I was told when I bought it, had been used by the previous, "speaker of the house", honorable Willy Brown, but it was never confirmed. I enjoyed my many years and it was never nearly as beautiful as it is now. The restoration is impeccable. Every drawer- inside and out, every edge, every movable part fits. The desk has a unique lock feature, that locks all the drawers with one key. We had to replace and re-work this since I never locked my desk. Lots of drawers and even one big enough from hanging files. Whoever buys this desk will have a lifetime to enjoy this wonderful streamline modern design. It is certainly an impressive professional looking desk, lots of "deal" to be made. Nice over-sized top with wooden front skirt going all the way around. Look at the exotic grainy walnut wood all artistically laid over the solid wood. If you've ever looked for something unique in a larger desk, this one is ready to go.

Art deco Desk

The Fletcher Art deco Desk from Fletcher Aviation of Pasadena

Item #1855 SOLD

This is a unique and super original art deco desk, kind of an Art Deco Icon. One really needs to see it in person to appreicate the subtle design and over all style of this great American made desk. The front inside drawer has a beautiful engraved copper placque or medallion that says "The Fletcher Desk" and a patent 140,501. The medallion has a stylized airplane and the words "Fletcher Aviation" and "Giving Wings to the World! Its Very cool.

A large and unusual shapely desk is very unique, rather heart-shaped with the user at the top, and the (rounded) point facing the sides. It was designed by Frank Fletcher and also manufactured by the Fletcher Aviation company in Pasadena, CA, around 1945. This particular desk has just gone through a complete restroation and refinishing. The wood is a warm brown mahangony color and the base stands a black lacquer kick that looks great together.

Lots of great storage with a bank of drawers on each side plus the coin, pencil front drawer with engraved medallion. This is a real "power" desk and I can see many great "deals" done sitting at the helm.

Art Deco Desk

Fabulous Executive Art Deco Desk

Item #1684

We've been waiting for this special Executive Art Deco desk for quite some time. This is a recent restoration, all completed emphasizing the original tradition in which we found it. A wonderful 1/2 round shaped top with strong dark desk skirt to outline this unusual shape and yet there is an inlaid dark writing area. From the front, it appears to be sitting on two elongated round front columns again with nice framed dark wood edging all along the bottom and up to the banks of drawers. Some very nicely designed drawers I might add. The right bank, once opened has 3 sliding drawers, plus a fitted lower drawer as well. The left bank (gosh I feel like I might be in France), also nicely designed swivel drawer (great for a couple of bottles to finalize the perfect days deal)! In any event a great desk, great design and its going to make someone (a lot of money ) very happy!

Great restored storage cabinet, lots of details and in multiple woods

Great restored storage cabinet, lots of details and in multiple woods

Item #1636 SOLD

This wonderful cabinet stands on its own. Great shape, great design and lots of detail. The dark wood is most likely mahogany and the lighter wood is some kind of honey sycamore, nice details and grain. I love the way the sides articulate, sometimes this is associated with "primitivism" but can just be appreciated as quality workmanship and detail. A beautiful large rosette on the front doors, also carved and important. When you open the double doors you find a neatly organized grid system. Would be great for just about anything: wine, record albums or your favorite little collection?

Spectacular Unique One of Kind (Modernist) Art Deco Cabinet Storage Display

Spectacular Unique One of Kind (Modernist) Art Deco Cabinet Storage Display

Item #1619 SOLD

WOW WOW! Feast your eyes on what may be one of the most unique Art Deco pieces of furniture we've offered for a long time. When I first saw this piece, sitting in a shop in Argentina, my jaw dropped to the floor. I had never seen anything like before (thought I've seen everything by now)? There is so much design and detail in the piece of furniture, someone who originally designed it (wish I knew who), utilized many of the best elements of geometric modernist triangular treatments. Yet there is a slight Art Nouveau treatment with the rounds dripping wood designs down the top and sides. Yet these shapes seem to resolve themselves in the feet which reflect a little of both. Forget all of that, just look at this piece of furniture, has an almost surreal feeling as well, Baby are you for real (or are you surreal or what). Wish I had a place in my house for this piece, I would not let this one get away. Never see this again. I think you know what i mean!

Spectacular Hollywood Producer Art Deco Desk 1930's Harry Cohn

Item #1543 SOLD

This is a great business! Every now and then something totally unique comes my way. Not always as it is presented. I am so excited to have completed this desk. It has been a project we've been working on now for well over 7 months. This desk was sold to me in January. It made its way to me from Seattle. This is the story I was told. This desk owned by the one of the most famous Hollywood producers from the 1930's Harry Cohn, part owner of Columbia pictures. The person I purchased it from had been given a photo but at last could not find the original photo showing Mr. Cohn at this desk. He did not want to do the research and figured I'd be a better custodian for a desk like this. If you check out all the photos enclosed, you can see the original desk I bought. It was an oval shaped racetrack executive desk! I liked the shape so I bought even without any really proof. (click on this link to see photos of the restoration). The desk arrived and to my dismay, the sides, which I thought were wood, had been added at a later date. They were metal with a covering made to look like wood. We took the side panels off and found a treasure hiding behind them, something I could not have imagined.

The desk you see here has been restored, repaired, enhanced and designed to correspond with the design we believe was originally intended from its inception in 1930 (the date is also inscribed in one of the drawers: 2-18-30, additionally there are names: Mad-5, 19105-F.N.P. and Sunset). Maybe some Hollywood historian might be able to shed some light as to what these names, and numbers truly mean (stock numbers/movie sets)? Looking through the book "Screen Deco" I did find a desk that could possibly be this piece, from a movie called, " Crimes Without Passion 1934 Claude Rains and Esther Dale). If this is the desk, It appears to have been re-fitted, the outside "bones" had been shaved down in order to accommodate a more modest looking design. As you can see from our interpretation of the restoration, this desk had to originally be very modernistic, edgy and a bit "over the top". During this period of Hollywood movie making, the films using the new "Art Deco" sets were probably the most spectacular interpretations of high style art deco anywhere in the world and some might even say this was The Golden Era of Hollywood.

In any event, we know it was built in 1930 and the design was originally black in most parts, since we found a lot of black over-spray when we took the top off to analyze the piece helping to determine how to restore it. We are kind of like archeologists, taking our ideas from the clues that were left behind. We did not change anything in the shape, the nicely carved black slats on the side or all original. Additionally, the top and the repeated wood base is also original. We did add the silver bands, which I assume were removed originally in order to accommodate the metal shell that was installed sometime later. We located some original art deco/bakelite handles and kept the top black which is now finished with a new piece of tempered glass including polished pencil edge. Maybe the desk was in the back lot and Harry asked his people for a desk, so the decided to make something a little more suitable for a Hollywood executive. In any case, this is our interpretation of what it could have been originally, we spent an awful lot of time on this piece and I have to say it is one of the most spectacular desks I've seen in all my "deco days"! It will take your breath away. It certainly does belong to the Hollywood era and I can certainly imagine that is how its life most likely began..

The lucky person who can purchase this piece, having the right environment will no doubt inherit the history and "mojo" that I know lives inside this piece.

Impressive hand carved Art Deco Sideboard cabinet

Item #1537 SOLD

You may have heard, when you got it, well flaunt it. Just fresh from the restorer a wonderful Art Deco cabinet with some very nice detailing. The main wood treatment is a spectacular grained walnut, sometimes called "circadian walnut" found in a lot of European art deco furniture. What I love about this pieces, first of all is the wonderful carving that runs down the front. The restoration really enhances the look with a rather contrasting point of view. This also matches the same kind of details on the harp bass (also with carving). The whole piece has great storage with drawers, side compartments and a nice front compartment below the pair of drawers. If that is not enough, check out the original bakelite drawer pulls and door handles. Butterscotch (but you can't eat it)!

Awesome Art Deco Desk and Chair In Style of Ruhlmann, spectacular!

Item #1368

You've probably only ever seen a piece like this in books on Art Deco. This custom piece was made for our shop, the goal was to re-create this famous Ruhlmann desk. The finest macassar wood was chosen and the "ivorite" details were shaped and inlayed by master craftsmen working to create this timeless classic. A real signature of the Grand Art Deco period. The finish is pure "French" polish with parchment leather inlay as part of the writing surface of the desk. The drawers are all joined in the class French tradition, heavy and meaningful. Even the chair is completed to emulate this design and of course needs to accompany the desk. The chair is upholstered in fine white leather to match all of the inlays in the desk.

This one will certainly take your breath away!

Ruhlmann's legacy as a designer was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004. In 2009, he was called the "Art Deco's greatest artist" by the New York Times.
