Artist Jack Mottern is currently producing a collection of custom "Occasional Tables " using vintage printing plates from the 30's-50's. These stunning plates were only produced by the in-house artists of the Hertzberg Binding Company in Des Moines, Iowa.
These zinc on rock maple plates have an amazing patina including the tones of inks used in the printing process. They are extremely durable and work well with custom steel bases. He has given each finished table a unique named, signed & dated them and will include a written history about the Hertzberg Binding Company. Please visit our gallery.
