Henry Glass Cocktail Table with Enamel Insert

$4,500

United States
circa 1956

Elongated and stylish cocktail table of walnut with an enamel insert in the centre. The tapering bottom stretcher and side rails are nicely joined and have a European/Jugenstil flair to them, as well as an architectural presence evoking perhaps a suspension bridge. Designed by Henry P. Glass and produced by the S.J. Campbell Co, circa 1956. Born in Vienna and trained in Industrial design and architecture there, Glass emigrated to the U.S. in 1939, working briefly in Gilbert Rohde's office in New York before settling in Chicago, where he studied with Moholy-Nagy and absorbed lessons from Buckminster Fuller. His furniture designs combined expressive, curvilinear visual elements with an underlying engineering sensibility. Ref: Furniture Forum, Vol. 7 (1956), page 99.
