English 19th Century Papier-Mâché & Painted Tilt-Top Tea Table
Dimensions: 20″H x 32″W
1860’s English oval and scalloped papier-mâché parcel gilt and polychrome lacquered tilt-top tea table. The shaped tray centered by a polychrome floral and foliate motif surrounded by a gilt arabesque border. The top mounted to wood with a brass slide lock over two twist columns ending in square bases joined to a stretcher terminating in splat feet. A very special and unique side table meant for enjoying tea. When not in use, the table would become wall art, being tilted against a wall, so the beautiful artistry could be better seen.
