Anthony Selmersheim Two-Tiered Fruitwood Pedestal
This French Art Nouveau fruitwood two-tiered pedestal by Anthony Selmersheim, features a delightful first tier that remains refined with its perfect circular parameters and only a slight but elegant outer lip. The second tier, by comparison, is imbued with a heavy spirit of joy; its four rounded spheres mimic the appearance of a flattened, but still lucky, four-leaf clover. The four legs of the piece are playful as well, bowing sinuously inward and outward to meet the two tiers at their necessary junctures before splaying outward in a ballerina's stance as it meets the floor.
