We have an elegant carved rosewood center table or foyer table made around 1850. It was indicated to have been made in Philadelphia but that can not be verified. The inset marble is in excellent condition surrounded by a solid rosewood border or frame. The skirt has an applied diamond or lozenge above the legs. The cabriole legs, with carved acanthus leaf are joined by a shaped cross stretcher with a large bulls eye decoration in the center. The feet and legs are of solid rosewood. The apron, as is customary, is rosewood veneer.
The first pictures shows the table prior to conservation. The remaining pictures after restoration, note the beauty of the rosewood. The gap in the top rosewood surrounding the marble has been repaired. It is a fine and elegant table. Casters have been removed, which in my opinion is best.
46.5 inches by 29.2 inches measured across the top, height 29.5 inches. A truly fine table.
