Don Shoemaker Wood Briefcase: Circa 1960

Regular price$3,400.00
/

This wonderfully detailed and sculptural briefcase was made by mid 20th century designer, Don Shoemaker. Shoemaker was an American who worked in Morelia, Mexico from 1947 until his death in 1990. He has come to be known as the Nakashima of Mexico and this piece validates that honorific. Shoemaker made small objects as well as furniture, all combining various tropical woods. This briefcase is a sculpture as well as a functional piece. The handle and knobs as well as the three dimensional pattern on front and back are the work of a master. The case measures 11" and 13" to the top of the handle. It is 16 1/2" wide and 3 1/2" deep.
