Object Description

A Very Attractive Pair Of Late 19th Century  Oriental Hardwood Coffee Tables Having Marble Inset To Shaped Tops, Over Heavily Carved And Pierced Friezes, Raised On Bold Carved Cabriole Legs Terminating With Claw And Ball Feet.

It is pretty common to find tables of this design in varying shapes and sizes, produced sometime around the mid 19th century in China, specifically for shipping to the western markets, but it is extremely rare to find true  matching pairs of them such as these.

They are the absolute perfect size and form to be used as modern day coffee tables, which of course very few pieces of antique furniture can do, as they simply didn’t make what we regard as coffee table height furniture in the 18th and 19th century.

The tables are constructed from dense, hard wearing oriental hardwood, which in combination with the marble tops, ensures that the tables are unlikely to be easily damaged by spilled or hot drinks.

The overall condition is good, with no structural issues in terms of the woodwork and the tightness of joints, so they are very much ready for immediate use.

Circa 1870.

Height 18.25in.
Width 16in.
Depth 16in.
