Mid Century Drexel Profile Cupboard – SOLD!

A stylish Mid Century Drexel Profile Cupboard from the Drexel Profile Collection. Manufactured between 1955 and 1961, this line offers an impeccable example of Mid-Century Modern design. Designed by John van Koert, the pieces seek to convey flair and beauty. Furthermore, his Profile line features a gorgeous blend of walnut and pecan wood.

According to the Drexel Profile Catalog (c. 1956): There are no abrupt angles in Profile. Tapered legs curve gracefully into the tops of tables and backs of chairs. The sculptured look is emphasized in case pieces by a gentle curve that joins the case at the top, the latter extending slightly outward both in the front and back.  

The back of the cupboard bears the makers mark. The stamp reads “No. K98-4 Profile by Drexel 7/58”

About the Designer:

Van Koert started out as a jewelry designer for Harry Winston after WWII and later branched into industrial design. In addition to furniture design, Van Koert also fashioned jewelry for Harry Winston and flatware for Towle Silversmiths. Well known for designing silver for Towle, particularly the Contour design. As noted in the catalog, he paid particular attention to the drawer pulls and other hardware on Profile pieces. Consequently, his Profile hardware presents a sense of flowing elegance.

 

Measurements:

Item measures approximately 32″ High x 34″ Long x 14″ Deep.

 

Condition:

Pre-owned, this table lamp is in good condition with some wear commensurate with age. Minor scuffs and scratches are present, in addition to minor corner wear. There are a couple extremely small spots missing veneer at the base of the cupboard doors. Also, the metal door pulls show some discoloration from use. The shelves bear scuffs and scratches from previous use. Lastly, there appears to be veneer repair on the left side of the piece, roughly a 2″ x 2″ square.
