"Anneau" Console Table, Model No. 206


circa 2002

from an edition of 30

varnished and blackened pearwood, patinated bronze

with the artist's monogram HV

31 1/8 x 49 5/8 x 11 3/8 in. (79 x 126 x 28.9 cm)

Overall in excellent condition. The varnished tabletop, which features a drawer on either side, presents with very faint scattered surface scratches throughout consistent with gentle use and light surface soiling concentrated to the recessed areas of the design. The center of the tabletop presents with an area of more concentrated scratches and small impressions to the varnish measuring approximately 3 x 2 inches wide in total and not visually distracting. The patinated bronze ring base presents with some occasional minor pitting, rubbing to the patina and scattered verdigris spots consistent with age and gentle use. A sculptural and imaginative piece of contemporary design.
