Schulim Krimper Queensland Blackbean Coffee Table, Melbourne c.1955
Krimper's superb handling of his materials is obvious in this table - a beautiful figured timber top, edges chamfered and joints beautifully fitted.
The table dates c.1955, estimating from other examples of Krimper's work. This example at the Art Gallery of Ballarat shows a cabinet of similar proportions, technique and style:
The table is technically and stylistically correct for Krimper. The evident skill in the handling of fine native timber, the proportions, the chamfering of edges (typical of Krimper), through-pegged joints (like 'through tenon' joints) and a particular stylistic element - concentric circles on the crossbar end plate - are all significant features of Krimper's work. There is a good example of the same concentric circles in a Blackbean Krimper lamp sold by Shapiro in Sydney. Please enquire for further images.
