Two-Tiered Occasional Table


circa 1900

mahogany, gilt bronze

29 ¼ x 25 x 25 in. (74.2 x 63.5 x 63.5 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The wooden surfaces appear to have been sensitively refinished at some point in its history to revitalize the rich quality of the mahogany. The mahogany surfaces present with light scratches throughout, minor abrasions concentrated to the legs and small indentations concentrated to the edges as consistent with gentle use. The wood presents with minor scattered crackling consistent with age and occasional areas of sensitive restoration and filling to the seams to maintain structural integrity of the piece. One leg presents with a crack around the circumference of the leg which appears stable. The gilt bronze mounts are in well-preserved condition with some light oxidation consistent with age.

Since we are not professional conservators or restorers, we urge you to consult with a restorer or conservator of your choice who will be better able to provide a detailed, professional report. Prospective buyers should inspect each lot to satisfy themselves as to condition and must understand that any statement made by Sotheby’s is merely a subjective qualified opinion.
