1960s J. Belarti Belgian Ceramic & Chrome Coffee Table
There is some debate as to whether J. Belarti was Juliette, a female ceramicist; a pun on the Italian Bella Arte; a community of Belgian Artists; or a pseudonym for Julien de Covemaeker, Ostende. Whatever the answer, in the 1960s, J Belarti created the most beautiful multi-coloured ceramic tables.
This mid century coffee or side table, signed by the artist, comprises handmade ceramic tiles supported by a chrome frame. The original Spanish glazed tiles are embedded in a charcoal grey enameled steel case, creating a modernist timeless elegance. The weight of this piece underlines the very high quality of the materials used.
The table is in very good condition.
The modern timeless elegance of this unique table is a beautiful addition to the modern home, and is a guaranteed conversation piece.
