Maison Plunder Brings Czech Crystal Chandelier, Maurice Villency Table in End of Summer SaleSep 09, 2021 14:00 EDT - Sep 23, 2021 14:00 EDT
The long history of glasswork in Czech countries starts as early as the 9th century. Clear Czech glass dominated European markets for centuries, particularly after leaded crystal became popular. Manufacturers started making Czech crystal chandeliers in the 1700s and catered to aristocratic tastes. These chandeliers often appeared in imperial palaces and the private homes of royals. The upcoming Maison Plunder auction will feature a Czech crystal chandelier that may have hung in a royal residence. The available chandelier measures over four feet tall and features layers of small crystals.
Among the available furniture lots, an antique German buffet is particularly notable. The curved buffet features wood inlays, beveled glass panels, and elaborate carved designs along the top edge. A modern dining table designed by Maurice Villency is on offer as well. Roche Bobois likely retailed this 1970s burl and lacquer table. A narrowing step design lies beneath the rectangular top. Known for introducing Scandinavian design to the United States, Villency also helped popularize sectional couches.
