Catalogue Description:
Low table with metal base (a) and three interchangeable glass table tops (b-d); rubber mounts and metal hardware. (a) Base formed of two sections of chrome-plated tubular metal joined at center into an X and bent to form four canted legs; legs widen at feet into cylinders; two additional X-shaped metal stretchers join diagonally opposite legs. The top of the base and the two stretchers form supports for the three glass table tops of differing shapes, all of which are polished colorless glass with a colored and textured sheet of polymethyl-methacrylate film applied to one side: (b) light orange hourglass; (c) yellow-green rectangle; and (d) light blue oval. The glass tops can be repositioned to form nine different configurations for this table. Condition: Excellent.
