Spectacular George Nakshima Minguren Coffee Table
Exceptional example of Nakashima´s work from the late period of his career. A magnificent plank of English burl walnut was selected for the top, which has a complete free edge, with no cuts. The top is quite unusual, in that it gradually tapers from the wide burl root end into more typical walnut grain towards the narrow end. A natural split is reinforced with a single rosewood butterfly key, which contrasts the free edge. The base is a thick black walnut plank intersected with a long stretcher, and a spindle supporting the far end. One of nakashima´s most sought after designs, with a truly exceptional top. The table is not only marked with the original owners name, but signed by Nakashima himself. Full provenance available, with original receipts, drawing and correspondence from the Nakashima studio.
