A fine high quality Art Deco Burr and cross-banded walnut music cabinet by S.Hille English circa 1930.
Originally commission made as a music cabinet , the shelves are easily removable , it would make a great television stand ,or side table.
Shown in original condition, the price includes a full re-polish, the original lacquer has faded which is obscuring the true colour of the walnut ,and hiding a lot of the fine detail of the wood. It looks good now when I have restored this suite it will look stunning.
Width 30 inch (76 cm) Depth 15 inch (38 cm) Height 32 inch (81 cm)
The Hille furniture company was started in the East End of London in1906 by Salamon Hille, a Russian emigrant, to renovate and reproduce eighteenth century furniture. The focus of the business was very much quality rather than large volumes, employing skilled craftsmen and gaining customers such as Hamptons, a well known furniture store, amongst others. By the 1930’s the company had established an international reputation supplying products all over the world. Salamon's daughter, Ray, subsequently joined and worked with the company to produce furniture to original designs. In 1932, Salamon retired and Ray took over the reigns of the business with Hille becoming a Limited company that year under her leadership.
