Exceptional and Unique Applewood Coffee Table by Wharton Esherick
Description:

Perhaps one of the finest artisans of his time, Wharton Esherick (1887-1970) had an excellent grasp on design and the knowledge to apply that design. This table expresses so much of that talent.  A nicely wood grained applewood top has organic and elegant form similar to that of a surfboard, while the inverted bowed and mortised legs lightly lift the top so it appears to have motion.  A subtle drawer rests in the center.  The table is monogrammed by Wharton Esherick and dated 1951.

Materials and Techniques:

Applewood, hickory and walnut.

Condition:

On the top there is a 12" thin fracture which is supported on the bottom by a butterfly joint and a small 6" x 1" patch on the bottom as well.

Origin: Paoli, PA
