Description Pair of very rare John Dickinson bibliotheque end tables, a very limited edition design from Drexel's Et Cetera collection. Three large Shakespeare books make up the tabletop, with the middle book having a pull-out drawer. Beveled oak moulding and ball end legs serve as the platform for the books. Black lacquered resin rods and nuts serve as the stretchers. Due to the cost and intense hand work required to make these tables, they were offered for only a short time. As described in Todd Merrill's book, Modern Americana.
Styles / Movements Mid Century, Modern
