This credenza is a great example of American furniture. The front of the drawers have that "brutalist" style, with raised wood design elements and sharper modern edges. This piece is perfect for storage, perhaps displaying two lamps, and is very well made and heavy. Walnut and brass finishes. Drawers and shelves are hidden behind two doors. Marked American of Martinsville. Excellent condition other than one surface scratch on the top which appears darker than the case-good body.
In the mid fifties, modernism took on many forms. American Furniture companies did their twist on the Danish design styles and American of Martinsville was a popular one.
