Offered for sale is an exquisite Napoleon III French two-tier Pastry or Dessert table with pierced gallery border. The first tier is fitted with handles and supported on tapered legs terminating in toupee feet. The second tier is raised on delicate bronze supports. The legs are connected with crossed stretchers and centered with a bronze urn-shaped finial. The frieze is enhanced with intricately cast grape-vine bronze panels.
The table tops are marble. The table is is excellent structural condition, the entire piece being rather delicate but sturdy. There are the expected signs of age and wear to both the bronze and mahogany finish appropriate to its age. The marble on both tops has been broken and repaired. We chose to keep the original marble rather than replace it with a newer piece because it is still so beautiful even with its flaws.
These table are very hard to find and this one is exceptional in both design and rarity.
Size: 41" Height, 25" Length, 15" Depth.
