Overall very good original condition. The table retains a significant amount of the original highly saturated coloration as seen in the catalogue illustration. The top of the table with some minor surface scratches and light abrasions, which are consistent with age and gentle use. With a few scattered discolorations that are consistent with use and the natural aging process of the patinated metal. A rare table within the LaVernes' furniture designs that shows the wonderful narrative decorative motif for which they are widely recognized.
