Iconic Mid Century Sideboard - THE HELIX

Iconic Mid Century Sideboard - THE HELIX


A beautiful and special mid century sideboard known in design circles as THE HELIX!! Price includes mainland U.K. delivery.

A stunning little piece of modern design history. As held and displayed in the V&A museum. Designed by Architects Judith Ledeboer (Post War Social Healthcare building reformer) and Peter Booth for Gordon Russell of Broadway, England. Exhibited at the 1951 Festival of Britain to commemorate the double helix structure of DNA being fully discovered. Made as a piece of beautiful and honest utility furniture whilst all building resources were still rationed following World War 2 and only made available to newlyweds. Its owners were both Oxford University Professors and I’m selling it on behalf of their daughter. Some ware due to age as to be expected. An iconic piece in beautiful authentic condition showing minor ware according to age. Priced accordingly for professional private sale including delivery. Its stunning, recognisable and noteworthy. AND there is no doubt this is a collectible investment piece if you need anything more to justify it 😊
