Absolutely magnificent & rare antique French Napoleon III era 29" corner shelf fixture, exceptional visual appeal with rosewood & gilt ormolu framed 'Tumbling Blocks' pattern marquetry inlay and fabulous condition! GORGEOUS! All of us who hold a special place in our hearts for those elegant old French marquetry table boxes & accent furniture pieces will simply love this piece! Measuring an impressive 28 7/8" in height and 10.5" deep, it has three rosewood veneered shelves and two inlaid panels that follow the shape or depth of the shelves. Ornate gilt ormolu edging and trim and simply put, as elegant as can be! A superb display piece for a few of your treasured smalls though the piece itself is a treasure all alone!! Museum quality, one you'd not be surprised to see amidst the opulent furniture of the Napoleon III apartments in the Louvre. Don't miss it!
Very good condition. No missing, raised or damaged inlays and all veneers are oiled, well cared for and have lustrous finishes. The one flaw is a hairline visible on the middle shelf, extending from side to side. Original hardware, ready to simply hand and ENJOY!
