We purchased this John Keal server from the original estate. The Florida waterfront home was a veritable living catalog for Brown-Saltman. Several pieces required the typical restoration process, but this server is a museum quality, original time-capsule gem. We’re certain you won’t find a more sublime representation of this dazzling server anywhere. The Furnish Me Vintage restoration team didn’t have to break a sweat on this Cuban Mahogany minty gem. There was hardly a single visible blemish to be found on the entire honey colored table. We merely had to clean and detail. The aged, honey colored mahogany is iridescent like a shark skin and almost glows in low light. Each biomorphic tier has a unique shape but maintains a boomerang form throughout.
This John Keal Cuban Mahogany server was a first for us. We probably won’t see another again for a long time, if ever. John Keal was a member of the gang of talented designers (Paul Frankl, Paul Lazlo, and Gilbert Rhode included), who worked for LA furniture manufacturer Brown-Saltman in the fifties. The company’s tagline: “Live in the Modern Mode.”
