1940'S Paul Goldman Bent Plywood Desk For Plymold Corp.
A piece of Massachusetts manufacturing history, this is an early work by Paul Goldman for Plymold Corp of Lawrence, MA circa 1945 (the predecessor company to Plycraft). Constructed of bent plywood with the art deco stylings of a tanker desk; note the rounded edges on both front and back above a central drawer, flanked by two banks of four graduated drawers. Beautifully finished in dark walnut tone.
Plymold is the patented method of molding wood veneers which makes possible multiple curves and formed shapes.
During WWII Plymold made the bodies for the Fairchild AT-21 Gunner plane with Haskelite and McDonnell, used for pilot training and to conserve metals. Post war they made Seaskout motor boats as well as furniture.
