Rare Large Romanesque Coffee Table

Philip and Kelvin LaVerne’s sculptural Romanesque coffee table composed of hand-crafted acid-etched and patinated bronze over wood, USA, 1960s. This exquisite coffee table is a rare model not only because of its large size but also the unusual rich mottled reds and browns coloration in the ground and legs – it’s more often seen with plain mottled white background. The finely patinated bronze pictorial playfully depicts Roman figures in different poses reminiscent of Michelangelo’s drawings. Incised signature to tabletop Philip Kelvin LaVerne.
