This is a gorgeous little side table that dates to the late 17th century. She has all the bells and whistles that make my heart sing: all original elements, overall good condition with the expected wear and tear of a piece that has been in use for about 330 years. Usually these old tables have restorations to their feet from sitting on damp cold floors and worm damage in several areas, but this little guy seems to be mainly intact. The old forged iron hardware on the drawer front is original and has acquired a wonderful patina. I love the fact that some one in the 18th century secured the top to the base with very large hand made screws; it also retains its original square nails and most of the orginal patina. Roberto is coming next week to spiff it up--he will remove the sticky newly applied finish that is only on the top; clean it up and then apply several coats of hard paste wax. I will post new photos after Roberto works his magic on this little gem. Just for fun, I'm adding photos of pieces in my inventory that would work with this table: a pair of Jacobean style side chairs which retains their original tacks and now upholstered in a Scalamandre silk (I kept the antique nail heads--great with the antique forged iron hardware of the table), a 17thc. century bible box, a late 17th century Spanish chest or "arca", and a late 17th ccentury Dutch mirror. And, PLEASE, let's not forget a pair of antique Fortuny pillows created with a Renaissance style Fortuny panel that dates to c. 1915 or 1920. I also think that this table would be a great counterpoint to a mid-century designed room supporting a Claude Conover vessel.
