Art deco table of ambonya veneer with two “allonges” of mahogany wood
An art deco table made of ambonya veneer. The foot has the swinging lyra form, which is typical for the art deco style in those days. Ambonya is a very rare type of wood, which was often chosen in the art deco because of the clear colors. That was a reaction on the 19th century and the art nouveau period with the often dark colored furniture of walnut and mahogany. The table has two “allonges”, so you can make the table longer on both sides. These “allonges” are often from another sort of wood. To this table belong 8 chairs of also ambonya veneer. See photo with only 4 chairs and see the other articles on my site: Leon Emile Bouchet gondole chairs.
