Harris Lebus Vintage Art Deco Style 1/4 Sawn Tier Oak Sideboard/Buffet

This Harris Lebus Vintage Art Deco Style Quarter Sawn Tier Oak Sideboard/Buffet, circa 1950, hails from London England. Constructed out of beautiful quarter sawn tiger oak, the sideboard/buffet has the fusion of geometric patterns and the sleek, bold designs so characteristic of the Art Deco or Art Moderne period; a low profile backsplash and straiightt-line features used throughout that seem to morph into the applied decorative geometric carving, curved skirt and bulbous double acorn feet. The sideboard/buffet has the original vertical straight-lined wooden handles, cupboard space with wooden shelves, the original felt-lined silverware top drawer and two drawers below, so there is plenty of storage space. This Harris Lebus Vintage Art Deco Style Quarter Sawn Tier Oak Sideboard/Buffet, has the original Lebus HL Furniture stamp and measures, 35.25 inches H X 48.00 inches W X 16.25 inches D. And although originally intended for the dining area, the sideboard/buffet could easily be used in the bedroom for clothing storage, converted to a bathroom vanity, used in the den to house the fax machine, printer and storage for one's office incidentals, or placed in the living or family room, since its top could easily accommodate a big-screen TV.

For those who may want a bit more information about Lebus Furniture company, it got its start in the 1840's when Louis Lebus immigrated with his family from Breslau, Germany to Kingston upon Hull and set up shop as a cabinet maker. By 1857 Lebus moved to London’s East End and was joined in the trade by his two sons, Harris and Sol. In 1883 they moved again to larger premises and by 1899 the Harris Lebus furniture factory had become the largest furniture manufacturing firm in England and eventually in the world. The family business of Harris Lebus came to an end when the partnership was dissolved and a public company was formed in 1947, however by the 1960's the factory gradually fell into a decline and closed its doors in 1969.
