The original Art Deco table was designed in 1941 by the cabinet maker and designer Erik Johansson and made by the firm Reiners in Mjölby, a small town in the south of Sweden. We designed and made this particular table in burr ash and black lacquer for the London house of the rock star Freddie Mercury in 1989. Mercury, who had a degree in art and graphic design from Ealing Art College, was a keen collector of antiques and art and was client of ours over many years. He was so pleased with this table that he commissioned us to make a second table for his apartment in Montreux in Switzerland. The only difference with that table was that the black spheres were decorated with silver stars.
We are very happy to announce that we will be exhibiting our Biedermeier and Art Deco furniture at The Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair in Battersea Park. We will also show a collection of 20th century paintings.
The fair opens Tuesday 27 September at 12.00 AM and is open every day until Sunday 2 October at 06.00 PM. It is over 20 years since we last exhibited at an antiques fair so this is a very exciting project for us. We realise that antique fairs have become more and more important as an event and the Decorative Antiques and Textiles Fair in Battersea is now one of the most successful fairs in Britain.
Here you have the opportunity to see well over 100 exhibitors covering a wide range of subjects with the emphasis on furniture and objects to decorate your home. For this reason it has become a Mecca for the interior designers who usually turn out in force on the opening day to pick up pieces for their discerning clients.
We hope to see you there
