Antique Victorian Cylinder Cabinet & Herman Miller Mid-Century Modern Sofa Come to AuctionApr 16, 2023 12:00 EDT
Highly popular during the Victorian period, a cylinder cabinet is a type of furniture that has a curved upper section. These cabinets usually have hidden compartments and multiple cubbies. A Victorian cylinder secretary cabinet made of carved and parcel ebonized wood is a key highlight of the upcoming sale by Showplace. It features mother of pearl keyhole covers and drawer pulls. Another noteworthy piece of furniture is a Herman Miller mid-century modern sofa. Upholstered in black, it’s a three-seater with solid back and seat and six stainless steel feet. The company is known for creating functional furniture for homes and offices.
A modern Turkish rug woven with wool also leads the catalog. The cream-colored piece is adorned with medallion motifs. The origins of Turkish carpets are rooted in the nomadic history of the Central Asian region. The wandering tribes lived in tents and the portable rugs provided much-needed comfort. The sale also features a Dansk Danish porcelain dinner service set for eight. Adorned with the Tivoli Gardens pattern, each piece has overglaze black marks on the underside.
