THE "E 1027" ADJUSTABLE SIDE TABLE BY EILEEN GRAY
Circa 1970s, cold-stamped "BS2" and "25773"
Item # 001VAS25P
Named after her Modernist "House by the Sea", the E 1027 table is a truly iconic design. Perfectly functional and devoid of excess, the table solves in function almost every dilemma faced by the side table. The cantilever form allows it to tuck conveniently under the bed so that one can enjoy coffee or a light breakfast in bed with the morning paper, the height of the surface easily adjustable by removing the pin and raising to the desired height. The steel tubular form is plated in chromium and it features a clear glass top. Note the fine welding and gorgeous chrome work, all polished and quite stunning despite some age in the plating. The lower "arm", through which the adjustable tube extends, has two cold-stamped markings to the underside: BS2 and 25773.
Measurements: 20 1/8" D x 21" H (lowest adjustment), 36 1/4" H (highest adjustment)
Tarnish and oxidization to chrome throughout, a hint of golden hue to the chroming. Small chip and roughness to edge of glass in one spot. Scuffs and use indicators to glass.
