This incredibly unique Catalan table from the 1700’s has exquisite motifs carved into its top walnut wood planks. At the center of the table is stylized cartouche with foliate motifs and two demi-figures flanking each side. At each of its four corners are fan shaped motifs of stylized leaves with rectangular sections. Surrounding the periphery are linear acanthus leaf moldings carved out of the wood. The typical lyre shaped legs are adorned with more foliate hand carved motifs, and they are connected with hand forged crossed iron stretchers. This antique Catalan table is quite versatile and can be used as a center table, entry table, side table, writing table or small eating table.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with some old restorations, old wormwood, minor scratches and losses, all commensurate with its age.
