A Fine Art Deco Mahogany console table possibly by Betty Joel.
The plain top with a canted front, over a single drawer, raised on chamfered supports and raised sledge feet, united with a double stretcher.
This was possibly part of the furniture made for St Olaf House in Hay Wharf, Tooley Street, London. The building and its fittings were designed by the architect Harry Goodhart-Rendell, and made by Betty Joel Ltd. Betty Joel was good friends with the architect and they worked on several projects together. He was responsible for Joel’s new factory at Ewell, once she moved from Portsmouth.
The table has the fine workmanship, construction and the type of timbers Betty Joel used at this time. It is difficult to think it could be by anyone else.
