VINTAGE CHINESE SOLID BRASS+MAHOGANY TABLE CARVED MOTIF

Vintage Chinese Engraved Designed Solid Brass and Mahogany Coffee/Garden Table Unique Find.

Purchased at an Estate sale In Troy, New Hampshire as displayed, as is, all original with over 50 years of patina.

I have left exactly as purchased as I do with any old items. I have not polished the Brass, tfore t is the usual tarnishing spots that I leave for the experts in which I am not.

Center has 2 large Chinese Symbols with a surrounding detailed border. Around the center are 5 engraved pictorial scenes of elephants, birds, deer, and tigers.

Beautiful Chinese symbols border the scenes. Gallery border is flowing with detail.

Mahogany base is quite interesting with 6 arms and 6 legs with a few repairs over the years. Table legs have brass bands around the bottom portion adding character.

Table folds when not in use and people use to hang the top on a wall for display and admiration until the table is needed. I would have left the table set up for display.

These tables were used as coffee tables and garden tables back in the 40's and 50's. Now they are sought after since being featured in many decorating magazines lately.

Would be an interesting piece for your home, office, bed and breakfast, Inn, studio, gallery etc. Top measures a large 29 1/2" by 18" tall. Thanks
