Antique Art Deco night stand or small table c1930. This one is gorgeous and in well preserved great shape. It's small size and open design lends itself to multiple uses for bedroom or any room. I cleaned it with beeswax polish and look how it comes to life. I didn't see a date stamp on anything but it would appear to me to be from the ART DECO period based upon the style and the rolling fall front and handle. The entire table appears to be solid mahogany wood except for the two small side panels which are veneer (if you look close, t is only one very small chip on the veneer at the bottom edge - see pic - more pics available we are burwoodhallantiques). This matches my mahogany bed so I am saying it is mahogany and it has a beautiful patina that shows an oxblood deep red brown color. It is a solid and sturdy piece, no wobble, lovely drawer and bottom shelf design. The "Winged" Art Deco Bakelite and Brass handle is of the period and appears to be a two piece construction with lovely brass accenting a shell shaped bakelite insert with swirled colors. I confirmed that this is a period replacement that replaced the one that broke. The bakelite has swirled shades of gold, browns, cream and a streak of red that picks up the red in the wood of the table and compliments it beautifully. The roll of the shell handle matches the roll of the top of the table. It stands on 4 legs that are pie shaped being rounded on the outside and sqare toward the bottom shelf.

This table stands 26.25" high x 13.5" deep on top x 15" wide. The single drawer is solid wood with dove tail construction. the drawer is 11.25" x 11.75" wide x 3.75" deep. Wt is about 18lbs unpacked and approximately 35 lbs packed including weight of heavy box. This will b e shipped in an oversize box with plenty of styrofoam and padding. The Estimated shipping by FEDEX within CONTINETAL USA would be about $40.00 plus insurance. (The heavy cardboard box is 27 x 26 x 18 inches. FedEX has the best rates for larger items within USA). Outside Continental USA, please compute and compare your shipping at the websites for USPS, FedEX or UPS based upon the size and weight of the packed box as given, the insured value you desire, and ship from zipcode 80031 to your zipcode.

Condition: Overall this 70 +/- year old table is an eyecatching piece of art deco period furniture in great shape. As stated, only one very small area of wear to the veneer on only one panel (see picture). From the underside I can see that a small piece of moulding has been professionally reglued. No breaks or fractures to the legs, Top is solid wood with lovely patina and normal wear. These things add to the patina and antique look of the table. All parts look to me to be original to the art deco period and consistent with the design of the piece. A GORGEOUS HARD TO FIND PIECE OF ART DECO FURNITURE. Large pieces come up often but these small accent pieces are harder to find.
