Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Model 901 tea trolley.

An early 1930s/40s edition – evidence of the ‘Aalto, Finland stamp’ to the underside.

It has been over-painted a few times at much early dates. It could be restored.

POA.

Alvar Aalto (Finland 1898-1976)

Early edition Finmar / Bowman Bros. dining set. Five model 611 stacking chairs and table. This was Aalto’s first modernist chair produced.

This set came from the home (wife) of Russian /American composer Dimitri Tiomkin best known for his western scores, including Duel in the Sun, Red River, High Noon, The Big Sky, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and Last Train from Gun Hill.

The set was once black but has been restored and taken back to the wood colour.
