1920’s Scrolled Piano Bench

This piece may not necessarily have been used at a piano, but it is a piece that would have been used at that time. I just want to point out some of the distinctive details here such as the scrolled ends and the tasseled detail. That type of detail that you see here on the ends is very distinctive of the art deco period of the 1920s and really make this bench special. Screenshot 2014-06-27 09.35.27

This is one of my favorite pieces when we talk about the 1920s because it just has so many distinctive features that really speak to art deco. For example, the hardware; this is nickle bronze hardware, very sculptural, very architectural in the way it looks and the way it feels. Then you have this gorgeous porto-marble top. You just don’t see this type of marble anymore. Screenshot 2014-06-27 09.36.01
