MODERNIST BIRDSEYE-MAPLE CREDENZA BY GIOVANNI OFFREDI FOR SAPORITI
Italy, circa 1970s, unmarked
Item # 112LEM01P-2

A delightful three-door credenza designed by Giovanni Offredi for Saporiti entirely in birdseye-maple veneered surfaces, it is a brilliant piece that absolutely glows under the shimmering acrylic varnish surface throughout. The doors are set with original tapering-twist bronze hardware and open to reveal a shelved interior. These shelves are adjustable using original knobs along the sides. It rests over squared bracket feet. The credenza is unmarked, but is a well-known design by Offredi and many marked cabinets exist in archives for comparison.

Note, we may still have one other matching credenza cabinet to this still available in the shop - browse our full inventory or contact us for availability.


Measurements: 59" W x 26 1/8" D x 24 1/2" H

Condition Report: Wear to the acrylic varnish, including: right side of case on bottom edge with one large varnish chip and other scattered smaller chips, back-most right edge of the top with a slightly thinning veneer exposing the underlayer (this is finished under the varnish with the same brilliance as the rest of the surface), left side of the case with small chips to the bottom edge, a few specks of blemish to the top, middle door with a tiny chip in the center on the left edge; overall remaining in "good" condition, a very nice presentation. Various veneer losses to shelves (unnoticeable without taking the shelves out). We are happy to send video showcasing every surface flaw upon request.
