Bent-laminated Beech Figurative Valet in the Manner of Alvar Aalto, USA, 1950s
Playful bent-laminated beech valet in the shape of a standing figure, United States circa 1950. This piece can support a hat as well as jackets and features a solid beech "vide poche" in which keys and pocket items can be placed for safe keeping. Just as attractive bare or dressed, this humorous piece can start a great conversation, or can serve as a useful but fun accent anywhere else in the home. This piece remains in good vintage condition, with a lovely tone to the wood throughout and charming signs of age and gentle use.
