Richard Meier Swid Powell Ana Medium Frame

0.00

Designer: Richard Meier (born 1934)

Item: Ana Medium Picture Frame

Manufactured by: Cleto Munari for Swid Powell

Country of origin: Italy

Year made: Ca. 1984

Materials: Silverplate over brass

Dimensions: 6” x 5 ¾” x 1 ¾”

Condition: Very good.  Some tarnish and polishing marks on the feet.  Signed with the early Swid Powell mark and Meier’s initials.  We have priced this a little lower than the other, because its condition is slightly less fine.  

Description:  A very rare and early Richard Meier designed frame for Swid Powell.  Excellent heavy construction and quality craftsmanship.  The Ana Medium Frame was produced in limited numbers in both this round presentation hole frame and a slightly larger oval presentation hole frame.  The round presentation hole frame has square feet and the oval presentation hole has round feet.  This model is getting extremely difficult to find, and we have only seen a couple in the marketplace over the past ten years.  We were lucky to be able to acquire two examples from the same collection, which we are selling separately.  We have photographed the pair together, but this is for the specific single item you see in the first two photos.  Meier’s designs for Swid Powell are in many major museum collections.
