Rare Desk & Chair by Donald Deskey

USA | c. 1930
Copper-plated steel, walnut, fabric. Most likely these are custom variants of models produced by Ypsilanti Reed Furniture Corp. These are framed in copper plated steel, and the production models were framed in aluminum. A very rare set that is possibly unique & perfectly represents Deskey's design aesthetic from the early 1930s.
