Additional Information: Provenance: Private Collection, Aventura, Florida. About the collection: "My family has been collecting art since my grandmother moved to Vienna in 1945. My mother was born in Eastern Europe and grew up in Vienna where she acquired a deep knowledge and love of Biedermeier and Art Deco furniture. Throughout her life she taught my sister and I to love, collect, create, and support the arts. As my mother traveled and lived in many places around the world, her interests grew and she expanded her collection to all different types of art. My sister and I part with some of these treasures and hope that they will find loving homes." Reference: Arts Decoratifs Danois, Eric Philippe, ppg. 63-64.
