Thomasville produced only a small volume of exceptionally well-designed mid-century furniture, of which this rare and handsome credenza is a shining example. Rosewood accents arranged in an eye-catching pattern adorn four walnut doors which open to reveal spacious drawers and cabinet storage. The case is constructed of solid poplar clad in select walnut veneer which has been refinished in a beautiful, durable, and water resistant tung oil varnish. The solid walnut trim has been refinished with a lower gloss linseed oil varnish to match the well preserved original finish on the door fronts and base.
The stamp on the back of this piece indicates a 1959 copyright, identifying it as an early and unusual example of Thomasville’s contribution to the American mid-century movement.
