Philip and Kelvin Laverne, Mid-Century Modern, Chan Coffee Table, Bronze, 1960s
Wonderful example of an engraved and patinated bronze-clad wood ‘Chan’ coffee table by Philip and Kelvin Laverne. Work by the father son design duo has been steadily increasing in value over the past 5-10 years. This particular example is an early petite version of the famed ‘Chan’ motif coffee table measuring 40 inches in diameter. The work comes in two pieces with the top being removable from the base. Good patina to the table top. Engravings particularly well done on this example.
United States, 1960s
The father and son team of Philip (1907-1987) and Kelvin (1937-) LaVerne created custom, limited edition pieces of furniture that were both functional objects and stunning displays of artistry. Their distinctive sculpted bronze pieces harmoniously combine innovative metalworking techniques with traditional motifs.
