Antique Renaissance Style Walnut Wood Center Table from Italy, 19th Century

This rich table from Italy has a very unique and highly detailed top. It dates to the end of 19th century, during a time of great renewed interest in the style of the Renaissance period. It is made from European walnut wood, and the top has a shaped elongated center section. This space can hold an important object, such an antique faience or silver, or it can be left as is. Surrounding this are beautifully proportioned and circular framed Renaissance faces, emblems, dogs’ faces, scrolling acanthus leaves, lions, banding and grotesques. The linear border is stylized rais-de-coeur.  The entire top rests upon lyre shaped legs connected by a shaped iron stretcher and incurved C-scroll feet.

The artist who carved this table was a true master of his craft. Today, because of the layout of its carvings, it can be used as a center table to display a special object. It can also be used a console or sofa table.

CONDITION: Good condition with areas of minor loss to finish. Old surface build up in areas and an age separation along one of the corners. Please inspect photos.
