The moment I saw this, I knew I wanted it. As it remains for sale, my desire to purchase it increases. However, I don’t have a place for it. There’s one spot in my apartment it could work, but it’s just a little bit too deep. And I have I hard time parting with money.
I see this, and I think Art Deco Pagoda. It’s got an odd number of levels, and the top and bottom surfaces flare upward. I also think the contrast of the ebony and sycamore is eye catching. There aren’t any photos of this, but apparently the uppermost surface is a removable tray.
It’s solid Makassar ebony, with sycamore maple veneer. Makassar Ebony is named after the largest port of the island it originates from in Indonesia. It’s also known as black ebony. Apparently, it’s rarer than it used to be because so much was cut up and assembled into furniture.
There’s not too much riveting information, at least regarding this post, about sycamores. There’s pretty common ornamental trees. I’m confident saying there are a few between the Public Garden and the Comm Ave Mall.
This console was designed by August Zinsmeister and manufactured by Gebroeders Reens. I’d never heard of either of these dudes, so I did some research.
Zinsmeister was an architect. That’s about all I know right now; his wikipedia page is in Flemmish or Dutch or whatever they speak in the Netherlands, which is where he was from. Most google results brought me back to this console, or something similar.
There’s also not much readily available information about Reens. Everything google brought me was just more furniture made by this guy. All Art Deco.
This console is located in the Netherlands. It’s being offered at $3776.95. It’s 29.14in. tall, 47.45in. wide and 17.72in. deep. I also found this on 1st Dibs. 7 day return policy. The seller’s details aren't listed, but they do have eight 5-star reviews and one 1-star review. That last one was probably just a cranky shopper.
