An original and extremely rare mark 2 Penguin Donkey bookcase designed by Ernest Race for Isokon, UK in 1963 with the original makers label intact!

This very cool and stylish bookcase and side table serves as a multi-functional unit with combined storage on both sides for books and magazines. The penguin donkey mark 2 was designed in 1963 after Jack Pritchard asked Ernest Race to redesign the original Egon Riss Donkey 1 (1930s) to include a flat top to allow it to be also used as a side table. Made of plywood with cherry wood legs.

This is an original piece from the 1960s and as such shows signs of age and wear. It has been cleaned but there are a few marks and lines in some parts of the lacquer commensurate with its vintage age, although this just adds to the overall iconic vintage look and does not detract from its beauty.
