Two Art Deco Stained Glass Headboards
These are simply amazing! Sourced from a Miami Beach movie theatre, where they once served as dividers between the main floor and mezzanine seating areas, they just happen to be the perfect size for Queen-sized headboards. Alternatively, they could be re-worked to make a magnificent oval banquet table. The 2" thick tubular brass frames enclose a border of faux-painted overlapping iron circles. In the center of each, a golden stained glass Palmetto Palm sits against a multi-hued rainbow of straw yellow, amber, cobalt, and amethyst-colored stained and leaded glass. The glass panels are backed with plexiglass on one side so no worries about breaking the glass. Magnificent and without peer when backlit. One is in near-perfect condition with a crack at the seam of the leading in a small pale yellow panel that looks pale blue in the photo (see photo #9), while the the other has 2 cracked panels, one to a small pane of amethyst glass near the bottom and one to the bottommost 2 panels of the palm leaf (see photos #10 and 11). One would not see these cracks on this piece if it were used as a headboard.
PLEASE NOTE these are priced and sold individually.
