Antique Library Table
Very Rare and gorgeous Antique Library Table! Based on its design features, the research concludes that it is highly probable to be of the latter part of the Renaissance (1300-1880) to the beginning of the Victorian Period (1837-1891). Our assessment renders the 1840-50s time frame. This table is masterfully carved throughout. The top has a smooth grain finish and is formed of several well-sized & fitted pieces of wood. The sides are ornately decorated with a wide inset border of carved scrolling foliage, shells, pateras, and lion masks placed on all 4 sides which illustrates this time period. The top is generously supported by the four heavy, round bulbous, carved, fluted legs set on square mask carved blocks. The legs are united with a large cross stretcher that has been dimensionally carved to accent the legs of the table. This table was brought back to life via a light restoration and repair of a few minor areas. All nicks and scratches were re-stained and the entire table was resealed in an antique poly-linseed oil blend to moisturize and seal the wood. Two of the legs have a small section (approx 1” x 2”) missing on the floor-edge base but we decided to leave them “as is” to keep its authenticity and character of the piece. This is a STEAL!!! Market comps for library tables that are similar in size and restored easily range from $3,500 - $6,000+ This table is breathtaking!
