We have this fabulous pair of side tables by Tony Duquette. He painted his famous malachite finish over them in the late 70’s or early 80’s, and in some places he did not remove the ormolu, so there are some traces of his handy work on the gilded metal.
Tony was a legendary artist, decorator and designer who was originally discovered in the trade by Elsie de Wolfe who took Tony under her wing. He went on to create and design movie sets in Hollywood, and won a Tony Award for costumes he designed for “Camelot” on Broadway.
The size of each is 29-1/2: x 29-1/2″ x 30″ high.
Sister Parish fans take note… I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, and especially anything about dogs! I’m so happy and thrilled to have a selection of Sister Parish Design’s new home accessories line in the shop… They are based in New York and happened to be in San Francisco today. I’ve known and worked with Susan since very shortly after she and her business partner Libby Cameron resurrected and created a line of fabrics in 2000 designed by her famous grandmother, Sister. They just launched their home accessories collection this past January, which consists of everything from cloth-bound notebooks, blotters, frames, laminated trash bins, trays, ice buckets, matching mommy and daughter aprons, it goes on and on…It’s so exciting.
They’ve made the cutest dog collar and leash, I couldn’t resist posting it… the collar comes in a small dog size and larger size for labs and retrievers. Please let us know if you’re interested, and we can send more information! We will post the rest of our SPD home accessories inventory when we get photos taken tomorrow.
