W273 – “Persian Chippendale” Table
Sturgeon decorated this Chippendale-style table with pre-Islamic designs from Persia. “Of the three nations in existence continuously for 2,500 years (China, Egypt, and Persia), only Persian designs have never entered Anglo-American period furniture,” he says. “I created ‘Persian Chippendale.’”
