Chase Smoke Stand - T138

Vintage Art Deco Machine Age Standing Ashtray

This is the 'Lazy Boy' smokestand, believed to be designed by Walter von Nessen in the early 1930's or so for Chase Brass of Connecticut. One of the few Chase items that can be used as furniture, it sports a small storage area under the movable circular top. The removable ashtray also has a sliding top, with a tube for ashes which sits in the fluted section. The circular top is covered in an original leatherette type material, which has some slight discoloration but is still very presentable. Metal is in very good condition with original finish throughout. We haven't polished the brass, so it retains a lovely patina. Base is remarkably clean without the usual assortment of large dents and dings; not spotless but very clean. All in all a very unusual and handsome piece in exceptional condition.
Height 21 Inches
