  • Description
    Philip and Kelvin LaVerne's "Tao" side table or small coffee table composed of hand-crafted, acid-etched, and patinated bronze over wood, USA, 1960s. This example features a Chinoiserie scene on a lightly textured pewter background. Raised signature to top 'Philip and Kelvin LaVerne'.

    Father and son duo Philip (1907—1987) and Kelvin (born 1936) Laverne were widely recognized for their sculptural and historically influenced furniture although their oeuvre also included fine art and sculpture. From the mid-1950s through the 1980s, they utilized the centuries-old bronze casting techniques using low relief sheets in their works including cabinets, coffee and occasional tables among many other objects. They created a distinct blend of function and artistry while incorporating ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Greek archaeological and art historical references. Their uncommon techniques included applying patina and acid etching to mixed metals such as pewter, brass, and bronze. The furniture and sculpture of Philip and Kelvin Laverne is highly sought after today for its one-of-a kind quality and demonstrated mastery of functional decor.
