Dutch modernist reception desk. Circa 1930s-50s.
Painted steel. Beech wood slats and composite stone top.
The exact provenance of this desk is unknown but it reputedly came out of a shop/store in Amsterdam during the mid-c20th. It has affinities with Gerard Rietveld’s designs of the era.
It shows signs of age and use – the rubber stops are very dry and worn, the steel has old over painting.
Some minor sympathetic restorations.
