Art Deco Machine Age International Style Chrome & Black Desk Gilbert Rohde Attribution


Fabulous Art Deco, Machine Age, Streamline Modern, Art Moderne, International Style, Bauhaus desk or vanity in chrome, black painted wood with red faux leather insert possibly Fabrikoid and Bakelite or Cat-O-Lite (Catalin) top. This desk is attributed to Gilbert Rohde for Troy Sunshade. It is in wonderful original condition. It retains its original paint which has a nice age patina as does the top materials which have been cleaned but left as is. The chrome has been polished but it is the original chrome so does have signs of age. We have only cleaned and polished this piece rather than restoring as we felt it shows nicely with its age-related flaws. Please see photos. We will be happy to get a bid for full restoration if you so desire. Circa 1930s.
