"DEMI-LUNE" CONSOLE TABLE
produced by Quigley Furniture Co., Chicago, Illinois
24⅛ x 19 x 9⅜ in. (60.9 x 48.2 x 22.8 cm)
Overall in very good condition. The elm veneer presents with rich texture and enriched with superb burled details. The wood presents with surface scratches throughout, light abrasions and minor indentations to the edges concentrated to the tabletop and feet and not visually distracting. The proper right side of the tabletop with a chip to the wood covering an area measuring approximately 3/4 x 1/8 inch. The tabletop also presents with spotty areas of surface residue which can be cleaned at the client's discretion. An elegant piece with superb proportions.
The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance only. Any reference to condition in the condition report for the lot does not amount to a full description of condition. The images of the lot form part of the condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Certain images of the lot provided online may not accurately reflect the actual condition of the lot. In particular, the online images may represent colours and shades which are different to the lot's actual colour and shades.
