When my husband showed me the photo of this table that he found, I might have let out a little squeal. This is such a fabulous find! And we found a whole lobby full of this Spanish Revival style furniture at the same time. Most of which retain their original Artes De Mexico Internacionales, SA tag. For that reason and because of the partial tag on this coffee table, we can reasonably state this is in the style of and most likely attributed to Artes De Mexico Internacionales, SA. And, of course, its incredible over-the-top look.
The shape of this coffee table is an octagon with three sections of a pinwheel or rays per side. In the center of its twenty-four-point star shape is an octagon metal pan. Some research points to it being a firepit but I think it can also serve a purpose holding a plant or flowers or maybe some decorative glass orbs. Having fabulous detail with metal hand hammered large studs and four-point stars or fleur de lis. It is truly a sight to behold! And, will be perfect in your Hacienda styled home or with your modern country, southwestern, industrial, or eclectic designed living space.
Artes de Mexico Internacionales, SA imported handmade pieces from Mexico, some even signed by their makers, exclusively for sale to the trade. Which means they sold only to architects and interior designers and not to the general public. Making their pieces harder to find and more exclusive. So, although they have beautiful pieces as well, do not confuse it with Arte de Mexico which is a Los Angeles based shop selling production pieces to the public.
This gorgeous coffee table is a one of a kind unique piece. I’m completely in love with its fantastic Spanish Revival style and know you are as well. Make it yours.
