iGavel Auctions is proud to feature a true collector’s piece of its era, a Phillip and Kelvin Laverne Bronze Dining Table. The father and son duo created artisan furniture between the 50s and the 70s and featured their works in their midtown Manhattan gallery on 57th Street during that period. They have used centuries old bronze-casting methods to give each of their works a unique look, a process that took them about six years to master. Their goal was to create high-end furniture that was not only functional but also could fit into any home design, whether traditional or modern, often using classical motifs drawn from history. This table depicts a women’s bathhouse and the artists engraved their signatures on the lower middle part of the table.
