Pair of Low Tables

circa 1925

lacquered wood

14 x 20 3/4 x 16 1/2 in. (35.6 x 52.7 x 41.9 cm) each

Overall in very good condition. The lacquered surface presents with light scratches, occasional abrasions, and marks of white house paint throughout. The legs with some very minor hairline cracks concentrated to the top. One table presents with a more pronounced surface scratch to the tabletop, measuring approximately 10 in. The edges and corners present with instances of sensitive restoration and inpainting which is not visually distracting. One table with an old auction paper label, and the other with adhesive residue from an old paper label. The feet retain protective metal pads to the underside.
