Today we are happy to offer for sale a fabulous large Arthur Court mid century-style whale and babies covered tureen and base!
Arthur Court was founded in 1966 with a focus on interior design. The company’s breakthrough came in the 1970s when it became the first company in the US to incorporate decorative aluminum into elegant tabletop collections. Since then, Arthur Court Designs remains a leader in the aluminum tableware and home decor industry.
This wonderful large centerpiece is finely crafted and detailed of cast aluminum with defined detailing. The piece features a large covered lidded dish, shaped like a mighty mother whale, with applied carnelian-colored glass eyes. The whale rests upon a bespoke fitted figural base featuring whale babies interspersed with crashing waves in the manner of late Edo period Japanese prints. This versatile piece can be used as a serving dish, ice/wine cooler, and will make a one-of-a-kind centerpiece of sideboard decorative piece.
Tureen and base present beautifully and are in very good vintage condition, with minor wear/scuffing, normal tarnish and patina commensurate with age (easily polished back to newness if you so choose). Add whimsical mid century style to any gracious table setting with this fabulous centerpiece…Fresh to the market!
