These tables came in many grades, and this is one of the best. Please view the images below to see the sharp quality of carving. The wood is a red-brown eastern wood which is beautifully figured around the marble, that portion of which looks like haunguali. The marble is nicely veined with no breaks or repairs. This type of table is extremely decorative as an accent piece and has many functional decorative uses as a side table, stand, etc.
Also note that the bottom stretchers are carved, which is seldom seen on these pieces. This is certainly one of the best of its type.All offerings are in fine condition with no major repairs or replacements unless otherwise indicated in description. Item must be insured in full.
