High style rosewood Egyptian Revival Victorian tilt top tea table. This rare table has round inset beadwork under glass and beautifully depicts a savior angel holding two twin babies and an owl on the right. The design shows the famous marble relief by Bertel Thorwaldsen, "Night,". This exceptional beadwork is in great original condition, and the needlepoint background weave has some normal age discoloration. The top inset has a narrow curved patinated gold border and flat veneered top. There are some chips to this veneer that have been colored in and blend well. The top has the original metal hinge that allows it to be in two slanted positions in addition to vertical and horizontal (see photos). The carved center post in the middle has a delicate horizontal roman key band and other original gilt incised carvings. The legs feature magnificently carved Egyptian helmeted warrior's heads, applied carved rosettes and well-defined carved claw feet; all decorated with more delicate gilt incising, and the original wooden castors. The base is solid rosewood. The quality and sophisticated design of this table would indicate an attribution to the famous NYC cabinet makers Pottier and Stymus: a true Renaissance Revival Victorian gem! Circa: 1870. Dimensions: 30" H (when a flat) x 27"Diameter. Condition: Nice dark original patina Some chips of veneer in the top. Some play to the center stem from age. Age crack in circular decorative element in pedestal - not structural (see photo). Price: $3250
