This is a nest of THREE hardwood, walnut tables by Gordon Russell, Broadway, Worcs, which is a town in the Cotswolds, England and dating to Circa 1950

 

The tables are slightly larger, but lower height than the typical size of a nested table. They have a simple form with an inset horizontal reeded edge and radiused square legs, very much in the Arts & Crafts aesthetic and with the clean well proportioned lines of Georgian furniture.

 

The largest table is 27 Inches Wide x 18 Inches Deep x 18 Inches High.

 

They are all in original condition and bear the makers tin plate label ‘Gordon Russell Limited, Broadway Worcs’, to the underside top.

 

Overall a very stylish well made nest of coffee tables from a quality British designer.

 

 

 

The Russell Brand from the Cotswold School.

Sir Gordon Russell shaped the history of 20th-century British design, utilising the design essence from the arts and crafts movement to design a modern, minimalist furniture style. He was passionate about high standards of craftsmanship but also accepted machinery as a means of reaching out to a wider market without compromising quality.

 

This combination of functionality with design made Sir Gordon Russell a pioneer in creating furniture to suit modern life. After WWII his furniture company successfully adapted and modernised to produce a well designed range of pieces, as well as bespoke pieces for special commissions.
