Important and Stunning Custom Cabinet in Black Lacquer & Gilt by James Mont

12,475.00

This stunning and quintessentially Mid-Century Modern piece was designed by the illustrious American designer James Mont circa 1950. Mont was renowned for assimilating elements of classical, orientalist, and Art Deco design into a modern sensibility, using the most luxuriant materials available- a style he termed "Chinese Modern." Mont's pieces filled the interiors of the "who's who" in Mid Century America- from East Coast mafiosos to Hollywood's elite. This iconic and dramatic piece exemplifies the qualities that collectors treasure in Mont's practice. The high keyed contrast of the radiant black lacquer finish and brushed giltwood detailing recalls the opulent interiors of an Oriental palace. The geometric linear forms, in 24 karat gold, suggest a deconstructed Greek key motif. With three deep shelves, two pull out drawers, and eight cubicle compartments, this cabinet provides more than ample storage space for practically any need. This rare item, by one of the most iconic figures in Mid Century Modern furniture, represents an incredible find for any true collector of the period. It is also a great statement piece for any interior space where sophisticated decadence is paramount. The piece is signed "James Mont Design" and is in Mint restored condition.
