Jacques QUINET (1918-1992) & Gilbert POILLERAT (1902-1988)
Exceptional wrought Iron coffee table with a beige marble top, and four flower-like designs in gilt metal, located in each corner of the table.
This table is very interesting and very similar to the one we sold at auction in France in 2006. The auction house set a world record with the result.
Because of the proportions and the details of the two tables, and that we were physically able to compare the two examples, we can definitely attribute our table to the two designers.
Astonishingly, the two tables have exactly the same measurements, same proportions, same marble type, etc...
The writing mention "Fortuny" under the marble top is an additional interesting information that indicates that our table was most likely moved from Rue Fortuny in Paris.
On Fortuny st. in Paris, #23, Jacques Quinet installed his office where we could find his very own creations as well as Gilbert Poillerat's.
The two designers Jacques QUINET & Gilbert POILLERAT even collaborated, to make some one-of-a-kind pieces.
