Exceptional Renaissance Revival rosewood Victorian center table. The stunning
design of the top features intricate inlay using motifs of herons, masks,
leaves, acorns, cattails, musical instruments, ribbons and a sheaf of arrows.
This is set into a background of numerous lovely light and dark burls. The
result is a profusion of vibrant color and beauty. There are a few very slight
separations in the top. This top is all framed by a intricate band of brass
molding. There is a gilt incised carved shield on the four sides of the skirt.
The two broader sides feature a bronze plaque while the two ends have a painted
porcelain plaques (probably Sevres). These are all encased with a fancy brass
border. There is also a brass border along the bottom edge of the skirt. The
skirt, legs and base stretcher all are decorated with bands of satinwood inlay
along with original gilt incised carvings. An elegant fluted carved finial sits
in the middle of the bottom stretcher. The table has the original brass cap
castors. With porcelain and bronze plaques, great quality and styling, brass
trim and vibrant detailed inlay, this table has it all!
