Unique Eventail table
[Table Eventail, pièce unique]
Executed by Gorlier
Réalisé par Gorlier]
70 x 143 x 243 cm ; 27 ½ x 56 ¼ x 95 ⅝ in.
Very good overall condition. The table top presents with a long dent on one edge, only visible upon close-inspection, and with scattered surface scratches, consistent with age and use. Another edge presents with two chips, not visually distracting and with cracks inherent to the aging process of the wood.
