Antique Rosewood English Breakfast Table Tilt Turtle Top Stunning Example 1865 For SaleYou are looking at my prized Rosewood Turtle Top Table.If Barrett Jackson had an sale for tables ...this one would be in it! One antiques man I met called this the "Absolute finest example of a Victorian rosewood turtle top breakfast table he had ever seen!".It is truly stunning. Take a look at the pictures...they speak for themselves....and they are accurate.
My wife and I purchased this table from an antiques dealer in Seattle Washington about 15 years ago. She was liquidating the estate of awealthyelderly woman who had brought the table to the US from Australia.
The former owner claimed this table was previously owned by a woman who was very high in the French aristocracy.We had a party and one of the guests arrived with theircousinwho was in the US for the first time from the UK. He ran the UK side of the guests antique business (The other side being here in Sarasota, FL). He was the one who revealed itssupposed true identity as a Rosewood Turtle Top English Breakfast table.Apparentlya fantastic one to boot!
My wife really loves this table and wants it to go to a good home. We have gone and purchased a very contemporary home (unusual for us) so we are selling off some of our fine antiques that we can not find a proper place for. Sadly this stunningly beautiful tablehas to go to a new home. Someone is going to get a real treasure here. We paid approximately $7,700.00 shipped to us from Washington 15 years ago. The antiques dealer wanted $10K at that time and said it would fetch more than that at a Sothebys or Christies sale if we ever wished to part with it. Buyer pays shipping and arranges for pickup in Sarasota, FL 34241.
Dimensions of table are: 55L x 41W x 29H.Good Luck and Happy offerding!
