Wrought iron and mahogany art deco dining room suite by Louis Majorelle (1859 – 1926)
One of his later works, we believe it is from 1924 shortly before his death.
The majority of Majorelle suites were in the Art nouveau style so this is a quite rare deco suite.
The suite consists of:
(1) a circular table:
With an option to extend the central section with 3 additional table leaves – original and unfinished. Stands on 8 openwork slat legs with an ogee base.
As a circle table it measures 53 inches (135cm) diameter. With the 3 original unfinished table leaves the total length is 113 inches (286.5cm) long.
(2) Eight high, straight back chairs.
Wrought iron flower details in the seat backs. Re-upholstered white silk seat covers with flower pattern similar to the wrought iron pattern.
16 inches (40cm) wide, 16 inches (40cm) deep, 38 inches (97cm) high.
(3) Large buffet/cabinet
Two large solid doors to the lower section with 5 drawers above with a central opening display glass door. To either side are two curved side doors. All decorated with wrought iron detail and lined in the same silk fabric as the chairs. The cabinet is signed to the right hand bottom end panel.
78 inches (198cm) wide, 21.5 inches (55cm) deep, 83.5 inches (212cm) high.
(4) Medium buffet/cabinet
Two large solid doors to the lower section with a glass door to the top section. To either side are two curved side doors. All decorated with wrought iron detail and lined in the same silk fabric as the chairs. The sideboard is signed.
53 inches (135cm) wide, 17.75 inches (45cm) deep, 50.5 inches (126cm) high.
(5) Wall Mirror
Original glass with bevelled edge in a mahogany frame and decorated with wrought iron to the lower area of the mirror.
53 inches (135cm) wide, 40 inches (102cm) high.
The condition is vintage and used but good with a small split to each circular end panel of the table and a few age related marks and minor scratches elsewhere.
