Andre Arbus & Vadim Androusov, sideboard (in restoration)


Ref #: SV26

Exquisite, large sideboard with five doors by Andre Arbus (1903-1969), resting on the base with stylized front legs and block back legs and presenting three middle doors in parquet-veneered sycamore decorated with fantastic sculptural escutcheons in bronze-dore by Vadim Androusov (1895-1975, Russian), depicting Poseidon and Amphitrite in lovers embrace, flanked by trumpet playing nymphs; the whole scene most likely tribute to Poseidon’s and Amphitrite’s wedding. In sycamore.

Currently in restoration.
