A Petite Snakeskin Telephone Table by Karl Springer. c. 1980s, USA. A snake skin wrapped telephone table from a Springer appointed estate. The telephone table in an exotic hide is unquestionably an icon of Springer’s oeuvre. His first forays into furniture design used this form and he played with proportions, materials and colors throughout his career. This charming petite version on castors is in near perfect condition.
