Vintage French Mid-Century Modern Lucite and Glass Side Table France circa 1975

The elegant circular columns on this vintage French Mid-Century  modern Lucite and glass side table circa 1975 France are reminiscent of those seen on Empire period furnishings created when Napoleon I was Emperor of France (1804-1815) and the use of ancient Classical architectural forms. These solid and substantial columns are visually transparent because they are made from Lucite (known as Perspex in the UK and France) as are the upper and lower frames that enclose the glass shelves. Both of the Lucite frames have a moulded edge with a curve that relates to the shape of the circular columns. Please enlarge the additional photographs provided to see the details that make this an intriguing table. Capping each of the four columns is a slightly raised brass cap while all four columns have a circular brass collar located beneath the top shelf and above and beneath the lower shelf. The use of a reflective collar is also a hallmark of Empire period furnishings and thier use here on the circular columns is another direct reference to the period. By contrasting the clear visual weightlessness of the Lucite with the richness of the brass the designer of this table gave it a uniquely modern impact.
