1958 Eero Saarinen for Knoll Associates Early 36 in White Marble Tulip Dining Table
Listed for sale is a very rare and early tulip dining table from pedestal collection, designed by Eero Saarinen and produced by Knoll Associates. This example retains an original Knoll Associates label with the 575 Madison Avenue label noted, dating it to the 1950s (Knoll's showroom was located at this address during the 1950s). Importantly, the tulip tables were not introduced until 1957, making it clear that this is in fact a very early example. The table was ordered with a white enameled cast iron base (much heavier than modern examples) and a polished white top. The original top is in terrific condition, as is the base. Both show only minor wear from use over the years.
The table measures 28.5 inches tall by 36 inches in diameter.
