There are a number of amazing antique Gothic console/library tables in the Renaissance Revival style, but you won't find another one quite as pure, downright Goth as this one! This table is over 150 years old, as it was made sometime in the mid-1800s. It's most recent provenance is from an estate in South Carolina that featured some of the finest Renaissance Revival furniture I've seen in quite some time -- all from the 18th and 19th centuries. Here's a proper description. Measures 49" wide x 29.5" deep x 31 tall.
The top has two mild age-related splits/cracks that stretch the length of the top, but are sealed and will not continue to split or degrade (see pic 5 and 6). Of the table itself features carved scrolling acanthus and some of the most exquisite hand-carved Gothic faces (in lieu of gargoyles) that are so well done that they're actually frightening! There is also a large pull out drawer with some beautiful carvings. Carved trestle ends featuring Griffins on all four (4) corners. The round feet of the table are fitted with casters.
The sheer amount of hand-carved details on this museum-worthy library table is truly astonishing. There are a few scattered surface scratches throughout, but nothing significant or. Noteworthy -- truly, the table is in outstanding antique condition!If you have any additional questions, I'll be happy to answer them to the best of my ability. Please note / caveat emptor.
