The present lot is part of a collection of works by Tommi Parzinger from a private Philadelphia estate. Parzinger’s luxurious yet refined designs were sought after predominantly by discerning clients from Pennsylvania and Florida. The original owners – a builder and his wife who married in 1965 – were friends with the designer, who assisted with choosing each piece. The missus, a graceful English emigree, enjoyed entertaining friends and family and one can imagine that many a sophisticated dinner party was had in their elegantly appointed home.
