circa 2003

from an edition of 20

lacquered wood, patinated bronze

33 x 78 3/4 x 23 5/8 in. (83.8 x 200 x 60 cm)

Overall in excellent condition. The wonderfully balanced design features a deep purple lacquered wood which when viewed at different angles displays occasional reddish undertones. The lacquered surfaces present with faint scattered surface scratches throughout and light surface soiling concentrated to the recessed areas of the design. The tabletop presents with a few more pronounced surface scratches, the largest measuring approximately 19 inches and not visually distracting. The patinated bronze elements present with scattered surface scratches, light surface soiling and rubbing to the patina consistent with gentle use and only visible upon close inspection.
