George Nakashima Italian Olive Minguren II Coffee Table

George Nakashima 

Italian Olive

USA, 1984

26 d x15 h x 77 w inches


Rare masterwork George Nakashima coffee table from The George Nakashima Studio.  Highly figured Italian Olive grain with all but one side in free-edge. The table features all elements in Italian Olive.  The rarity of an olive wood piece is much more so than that of a burl or maple burl piece.  Olive pieces by George Nakashima could number in the single digits.  This is the purest form of a George Nakashima piece.   Olive is the king of the trees.  The table is signed and dated by George Nakashima with the client's name above the signature. 

Sold with a copy of the original order card.
