Boudoir Table, Mid 19th Century

Title

Boudoir Table, Mid 19th Century

Description

Crafted off rosewood, walnut and satinwood or maple, the table has many European characteristics that support its oral history of French provenance. Similar New Orleans pieces built before 186 by American, French-trained craftsmen have cabriole legs, cartouche style base carvings and 'French Polish' rosewood cases. This exceptional piece has multiple interior levels and drawers terminating in a shaped pull-out work basket.
