Deco Skyscraper Table Mirror – Norman Bel Geddes

$2,500.00

Industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes was employed by the Simmons Furniture Company of Chicago to update the bedroom line of furnishings. Instead of taking the period reproduction route, he introduced a bold new form of painted steel modern furniture, with roots in Germany's Bauhaus movement. This deco skyscraper table mirror is certainly the most memorable of the designs, and even pre-dates the Empire State Building by a few years! The line was produced from 1929 to 1932. Ours has been restored, including re-plating of the glass and metal trim, and a re-lacquered base. This iconic mirror resides in the Brooklyn Museum, and an example was part of the historic “Machine Age in America” touring museum exhibit and book.
