American of Martinsville "Harlequin"

Harlequin was designed by Merton Gershun for American of Martinsville. Several companies including Basic-Witz made a similar harlequin inlaid design, with many internet sources giving credit to Albert Parvin for designing this line. However, in our research we have found no evidence that Parvin created furniture like this.
