Surmounted by antique parquetry that was constructed using round pegs, this wrought iron and bronze dining table was crafted in France, circa the 1940’s. The top has been laid out in a linear echelle (ladder) parquetry pattern, contrasting with the highly scrolled base. Both legs are comprised of two large volute S-scrolls abutting against each other. Small pieces of iron extend outwards from the bottom of the volutes, forming scrolled feet. Wraparound iron brackets secure the volutes to the stretcher, which consists of four elongated S-scrolls, also bracketed together. Concentric squares of gilded bronze form decorative protuberances along the legs and stretcher. A rectangular platter has been attached to the top of the iron, providing a stable mount for the parquetry top. At 107 inches in length, our beautiful wrought iron and bronze dining table with pegged parquet top can fit 10 adults comfortably.
CONDITION: Good condition with wear commensurate to age and use, including minor age separations to the top. Light staining and discoloration to the wood. The vertical iron support in the center of the table is detached and inserts into the intersection of two scrolls. Care needs to be taken if moving the table, as the top rests on a platter and is not permanently affixed to the base.
