Custom-made by North Carolina Modernist Architect Karl Sloan Gaskins

As neighbors to the architect Karl Gaskins, this set was commissioned from wood provided by the consignor and a beloved staple for decades of family gatherings.

The set is in overall good usable condition; the table with some light surface scratches and one indent; the chair's inner-tubes are deflated and likely with dry-rot; one chair with one back splat broken and repaired; one caster is loose.
