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.
Dutch modernist work desk
1930s. Designer/ manufacturer unknown.
We are currently researching this desk. It has similarities to the Dutch Pander furniture company. Gerrit Rietveld was also reputed to have designed a few private commissions in bright colours.
It has its original paintwork that has faded in places to a tangerine/ coral colour. It has a grey/green cloth top surface. It shows some signs of age and use as would be expected and would benefit from some TLC.
Currently not for sale.
