EUGÈNE PRINTZ (1889-1948) & FRENCH WORK From... - Lot 17 - Hôtel des Ventes de Poitiers Boissinot & Tailliez
EUGÈNE PRINTZ (1889-1948) & FRENCH WORK From a model created circa [1930/32]. Middle table forming a bridge table; the base is not original. The square entablature with concave cut-out sides and truncated corners is entirely plated with a sheet of brass, probably initially oxidized with a sponge, and receives the cruciform spacer (designed to hold the top) in walnut veneer and enriched with patinated brass at the ends. The reversible circular top has one side entirely trimmed in patinated brass; the other side initially trimmed with a felt game mat (missing) set in a walnut veneer frame. 1930's Moulded walnut corner legs (most probably from another Printz table) joined by a non-original spacer and paired later. Height: 80 cm - Width: 70 cm - Length: 80 cm Non-original legs and spacer, entablature displaced on its underside, reversible circular top felt missing, discoloration and oxidation to brass parts of entablature and circular top.
