The Osvaldo Borsani (1911-1985) palisander and parchment console and table are circa 1935
Exotic materials used as veneers were an intriguing aspect of the period in which they were made.
The Austrian Desk in Makore with inlaid mother of pearl and fruitwood, applied brass to base and verre eglomise top. c.1920 would be a wonderful addition to any professional or personal space.
The recently expanded Martyn Cook Galleries will show off this stunning range of modernity most effectively.
As well as antiques prior to World War II, the showroom has a stunning range of fabrics, many not offered anywhere else in Australia.
Must say they are all certainly my cup of tea.
