Exquisite and rare works of 20th Century Design will be offered in Phillips de Pury's Design auction, on April 7th in London. These are my favorite picks:
A monumental polished brass chandelier by Paavo Tynell.
A rare polished bronze lamp by Jacques Quinet.
A pair of Tour Eiffel screens, and a Bouquet wall lamp, both by Jacques Adnet.
A rare Charlotte Perriand freeform desk.
A rare Poul Kjaerholm folding screen in Oregon Pine.
A Jean-Pierre Vitrac adjustable table lamp.
A chrome and plastic Raymond Fernand bedroom set.
A very rare painted papier-mâché mirror, and a velvet and walnut lounge chair, both by Gio Ponti.
A pair of Venini blown-glass pendant lamps.
Spiraling wall sconces by Gino Sarfatti.
And a perspex and marble floor lamp by Angelo Lelli.
