Here we have for sale - an incredible quirky wide drinks bar console table, with one drawer under.
Timber is an exotic hardwood - possibly mahogany, or similar - which has been painted or guilded in certain areas with gold to highlight details.
The quality of the whole thing is very high - and was probably bespoke. The drawer is dovetailed in the old 'craftsman' way, and there are embelishments in brass in various places.
The under back is mirrored.
The design style is distinctly Egyptian, Nubian, or North African - the upper table itself is supported on partially-dressed winged maidens with claw feet.
Please see all the pictures.
The upper table surface is very plain - has a few marks and blemishes, but nothing serious. Could possibly have had a marble or slate top.
All the joints are solid, and its a heavy piece.
This would be perfect for someone wishing to have something different in their home or private space as a drinks bar.
This is a super table in fair to good condition. Some of the gold has worn away in some areas - giving a lovely patina effect. There is a chip to the wood on one corner (piece missing about 4 cms long).
Can be delivered to anywhere in mainland UK at extra cost - please enquire.
Dimensions (very approx):
Depth (front/back) = 54 cms (21.25 inches)
Width = 148 cms (58.25 inches)
Height (top surface) = 92 cms (36.25 inches)
Height (lower surface) = 13 cms (5 inches)
Please study all the pictures - the item is not new (possible over 20 years old judging by the general look), so expect a little wear and tear - but its great.
