Tubular steel bed PEL 1930s

Oak and Tubular Steel Desk, Anon, UK, 1930s

A tubular steel framed desk with two solid oak pedestals, dating from the 1930s. The proportions and use of oak would suggest that it is British, possibly by Kingfisher or PEL.

Canadian-born Architect Wells Coates designed for both of these manufacturers and designed a very similar desk for PEL in 1933.

Condition is as to be expected from a working desk of this age, and by the looks of it has been repainted at some point (seems to have once been limed). Some dents and scratches to the desk top too, but all adds to the patina of the black painted wood.

 

Materials:

Oak, plywood (?), chromed tubular steel, alluminium
