dibétou, mélaminé et plastique

Réalisé par Gorlier]


92 x 234 x 48 cm ; 36 ¼x 92 ⅛ x 18 ⅞ in.

Good overall condition consistent with age and use. The wood presents with surface scratches as well as scattered discoloration stains, mostly concentrated on the top and common with age and not visually distracting. There are multiple dents mainly concentrated along the edges ( a more visible one of approximately 1,5 cm) and small dark stains along one edge of the side board but these do not alter the functionality or aesthetic quality of the work.

Each foot presents with losses of wood, concentrated along the edges, as well as abrasion traces, as visible in the catalogue.

The melamine presents with stains and surface soiling.

Each drawer stamped MODELE CHARLOTTE PERRIAND BREVETE SGDG

This sideboard presents well overall and is a well-preserved variation of a popular Perriand design
