Art Deco Sideboard in Oak with Marabou Birds
Sideboard, darkened oak, striped ebony, the Netherlands, 1930s Dutch Art Deco sideboard with carved details in striped ebony. Truly striking about this sideboard is the woodwork in oak and striped ebony. The sideboard is made of oak, with oak veneer on top of the the doors and drawers. The veneer creates geometrical shapes on top of the doors and enhances the focus on the carved handles. The handles are made of striped ebony, are stylized and abstract representations of natural forms, as is typical for Art Deco. On both sides of the drawers two stylized Marabou birds are keeping watch. Both the top rim and the rim on the base are accented by a wavy rim of striped ebony. This interesting sideboard features two cabinets and three drawers. The cabinets both have a shelve, creating plenty of room for storage.
