Description Sculptural bench or table in solid Brazilian rosewood with Brazilian rosewood burl legs. Purchased in Mexico, 1960s. A well-crafted piece featuring a spectacularly grained, polished live-edge top with three burl legs each with its own abstract sculptural character. Belying its spontaneously naturalistic appearance, this is a carefully composed work balancing the shape of the found rosewood trunk section with the graining in the top, the extrusions and notches in the body, and the forms and placement of the legs. An impressive example of this genre, from the collection of a family who also acquired top-shelf George Nakashima works in the same period.
