PETITE Antique FRENCH Carved Oak Gothic Renaissance Desk Library Table SMALL

~Direct from France~

An elegant antique FRENCH carved LIBRARY TABLE or "bureau plat" desk, commonly referred to as a Victorian "DOLPHIN" table, so called for the ornately carved "dolphin" feet. THIS IS A VERY PETITE SIZE for this style, making it even more versatile for use in today's home!!

~~With its tiny size, IMAGINE this one anywhere in your home, as a console table, a nightstand, or end table. In ten years, we’ve NEVER found another one this small, yet it has ALL THE FEATURES of the FULL SIZE BUREAU PLATS~~


~Incredible detailed carving, captivating features, ornately done

relief carved lion masks, canted corners, Gothic drop finials & arches, Renaissance flair & mythical sea creature feet~


~CARVED ON ALL SIDES, full length dovetailed front drawer ~

~SOLID OAK WITH A lighter oak that beautifully 'shows off' the carving details~

This is a FRENCH bureau plat; you can see the differences from an English table in the gadrooning on the apron and the drop finials as well as the carving designs.

~c1870~

Certainly one of the most difficult designs to find in today’s market, and this table doesn’t disappoint, as it has ALL the elements that truly make antique furniture valuable today….

1. QUALITY (quality in how it was originally made by craftsmen of the period)…

2. CONDITION (how the table has survived through the years….very good!)…

3. RARITY (How many were originally made? These were only made by the best craftsmen and not mass produced!) …

4. DEMAND (Ornately carved Victorian tables are the number 1 items decorators and designers look for, as a statement piece and to add interest/detail to any room).

Measurements:

VERY SMALL, smallest size available, 30"H x 25.5” x 19.5”.

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MULTIPLE PHOTOS

NOTE: All of our antiques are direct from Europe. I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques!

Condition:

The table is in good condition for its age, c1880 or earlier, with normal signs of age and use, dings, scratches and other imperfections. The carvings are wonderful and there are drop down finials on the four corners…VERY hard-to-find. Table top has age wear and darkened spots on the finish…as to be expected and further proof of age and authenticity.

I always provide multiple photos that should be considered as part of the description and I encourage you to email me with any questions you might have prior to offerding. Please keep in mind antique furniture should be purchased for its uniqueness, higher quality material and craftsmanship and antique patina, charm and character….NOT for like-new condition!!!

Shipping:

Professional packaging, shipping and insurance on this item will be $185.00. (Lower 48 states only), economy freight, 6 week delivery approx., due to the size and weight of the desk. PLEASE INCLUDE your contact PHONE NUMBER WITH YOUR PAYMENT, for the shipper.
