Sister Tables made from Historic Wood, Noble Brandon Judah Manor House

These tables are reclaimed quartersawn old growth pine. The lumber was the substrate core for the cherry doors that hung at Noble Brandon Judah Manor Home Estate. The doors hung from 1928 thru the spring of 2010.

The original architect was David Adler, designer of the Adler Planetarium and other historical Chicago buildings from the turn of the century. 

Noble Brandon Judah was a lawyer and partner in his own law firm. A member of the IL. House of Representatives from 1911 to 1912, and a decorated veteran of World War I, he served as U.S. Ambassador to Cuba from 1927-1929.

His wife Dorothy Patterson was an heir to the National Cash Register Fortune. 

In keeping with the Adler designs, the tables also include: inlaid slate, iron work and inlaid Brazilian walnut, American walnut, Brazilian cherry, American maple and mahogany from Honduras.
