A Fine Pair of Gilt-Bronze Mounted Marquetry Inlaid Card Tables With Sèvres-Style Porcelain Plaques.
English, Circa 1870.
Each table has a rectangular fold over top with lobed corners, finely inlaid with floral bands and stylised scallop shells. Below is a pullout action frieze mounted to each side with finely painted Sèvres-Style porcelain plaques and fluted tapering legs with inlaid square capitals and turned tapering feet. The fold over top opens to reveal a baize lined playing surface within a gilt-tooled red leather border and shallow ebonised counter wells to the corners.
