"Clématites" Side Table


circa 1904

mahogany

29 ½ x 37 ½ x 61 in. (74.9 x 95.2 x 154.9 cm)

Overall in very good condition. The wood surfaces present with scratches concentrated to the tabletop as well as very minor edge abrasions and wear throughout, and appear to have been sensitively refinished at some point in the history of the work. One of the side railings with a small and stable hairline crack measuring approximately 1/2 in. long and not visually distracting. The carved decorative motifs remain overall intact and display superb naturalistic quality with some minor traces of surface soiling concentrated to the recesses.
