Funky Belgian magazine rack c 1960 Belarte ?
We sourced this lovely and unusual magazine rack in Belgium . Having picked it up , a Belgian dealer saw it and told us he thought it was a Belarte design . Belarte are known for their tiled tables , and this has an original patterned laminate to the top rather than tiles , and as it isn’t signed and we haven’t seen another we can’t be sure .
The black metal base has brass screw fittings and brass rods to hold the magazines in place . It’s in lovely vintage condition with a nice patina .
Very stylish and unusual and could only be made in the late 1950s or early 1960s .
Materials: metal and laminate
