George Nakashima


Minguren I coffee table

USA, 1986
maple burl, American black walnut
53½ w x 28 d x 15¼ h in (136 x 71 x 39 cm)


estimate: $70,000–90,000

George Nakashima hand-selected this special, figured tabletop at the request of the original owners. The expressive and unusually thick slab top displays numerous fissures, recesses, burls, knots, continuous free edge and a naturally formed 'bridge' to one edge. The light-colored and sculptural tabletop stands in balanced contrast to the minimal, dark walnut base. Nakashima added a unique profile to the slab base that tapers in three dimensions away from the center. Signed and dated to underside: [George Nakashima April 1986] with client name to underside: [Fabricand]. Sold with original correspondence from George Nakashima, a photocopy of the rendering for the table, a photocopy of the original order card and a letter of authentication from Mira Nakashiama.

provenance: Joyce and Herb Fabricand, Mt. Dora, FL | Kai and Jenny Woo, Long Beach, NY | Private Collection
