Exceptional and Unique Applewood Coffee Table by Wharton Esherick
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.
