Catalogue Description:
Three-piece, three legged lounge table with an oiled walnut base and rounded-triangular, uncolored, polished plate glass top. Base is composed of two identical parts (a & b), each "L-shaped" with pointed ends and rounded corners. When assembled, the "L's" are joined at their tops and form an angle. One "L" rests on the floor on its long side, the short side extending up to support the tabletop (c). The other "L" is reversed, the long side supports the tabletop, and the short side forms a leg. The juncture of the two "L's" forms the third leg. A cylindrical solid metal pin of about 3 7/8 inches forms the juncture of the base along one "L" and fits into a hole in the second "L." The glass tabletop is about ¾ inch thick. Object is sub-lettered as follows: (a) base part with pin; (b) base part with hole; (c) glass top.
