Pair of Mid-Century Modernist "Mandarin" Black Lacquer Low Chests by Kittinger

$ 12,475
  • Description
    This bold and thoughtfully composed Pair of Mid-Century Modernist "Mandarin" Low Chests in Black Lacquer with Antique White Gold Greek Key Detailing are by Kittinger and originate from the United States, Circa 1945. A lovely example of the utilization of eastern design influences rendered in minimal geometric form, the body of the chests are finished in a gleaming black lacquer with Greek Key detailing finished in a beautiful antiqued white gold leaf. The glittering quality of the white gold linear detailing pairs well and provides excellent contrast to the deep and sumptuous black lacquer. Each chest has three drawers providing ample storage, highly functional and aesthetically bold and elegant. Entitled the "Mandarin" chests referring to the eastern sensibility of the key detailing. Resting on well proportioned plinth bases and with carefully beveled convex curvatures circumscribing the outside edge of the white gold lining the piece, these sophisticated chests will draw the appreciation of those with a love for innovative Mid-Century Modernist design. Styling effortlessly in a wide array of spaces and settings, from Mid-Century Modernist to Contemporary and Minimal Interiors. In Mint Restored Condition.

    American, Circa 1945
