Mid Century Modern American of Martinsville Merton Gershun Urban Suburban Full-Size Bookcase Headboard


Handsome mid-century modern (MCM) full-size bookcase headboard designed by Merton Gershun for his Urban Suburban line for American of Martinsville. It is in wonderful vintage condition. We have restored the top but there is still a nice age patina to the complete headboard including small nicks and dings. There was a spot on the bottom of the right leg that had at some point been wet. We have repaired that spot. It is in an unobtrusive place and does not hurt the overall beauty of the piece. Please see photos. Circa 1960s.
