Note: Plexiglas was produced by Rohm and Haas in Philadelphia around 1936, at the same time that Lucite was first developed by DuPont. Both had the same chemical make up and were used in airplane manufacturing (windshields) during the Second World War. This created a break in Plexiglas/Lucite furniture production which recommenced after the War. Grosfeld House was a New York furniture manufacturing company that produced some of the earliest high-style pieces in Plexiglas, some under the guidance of designer Lorin Jackson, who among other things, was known for her 'Glassic' line of furniture in the Neoclassic taste, of which these are an example. ee the attached illustration, plate 63 from the book: 'Colour Schemes and Modern Furnishing' by Derek Patmore, First printed 1945, reprinted 1947 by The Studio: London & New York.
