Assembled using square peg construction, this antique oak side table was hand-carved in France in the early 1900’s. The tabletop is comprised of five sinuously shaped boards with thin molding that mirrors the shape of the edges.

The highly detailed apron features identical carvings on all four sides. The motifs consist of a scalloped shell flanked by sprawling acanthus leaves. A thin molding originates underneath the shell as two facing volute scrolls and trails down the four cabriolet legs. The upper arcs of each leg, which curve outward, are adorned by a gadrooned leaf with a foliate margent that hangs beneath the center oval medallion. The molding terminates on the concave lower section of each leg, just above stylized ball and claw feet.

This fantastic antique side table from the early 20th century can be placed next to a sofa or chair in the living room. Since the table is carved on all four sides, it could also be used as a small center table. The wood has a light but warm color and has taken very well to a light French wax.

CONDITION: Wear commensurate to age and use with minor nicks, uneven edge, rubs, and losses. Old repairs to the underside of the tabletop, with several pieces of wood stabilizing two of the planks. All five planks were previously glued together as well, further strengthening the table.
