Jules Leleu

Rare Art Deco Bench

France, 1925



Medium: African Mahogany

Dimensions: 20" high x 41" wide x 15" deep

Private collection, Providence, Rhode Island. Calderwood Gallery, Philadelphia.

Part of a series first shown at the 1925 International Exposition, Paris. Currently without upholstery.

Please note that the fluted carving seen on our bench is an element of the design vocabulary used by Jules Leleu in the mid-1920s, as seen on the chair featured on the dust jacket of the French edition of the book "House of Leleu." This is possibly a grand piano bench and was purchased several decades ago from the Calderwood Gallery in Philadelphia, and comes from a private collection in Rhode Island. Our bench bears an inventory number from the Leleu studio.
