Here is a terrific Art Deco Console Table, or side table, which has been carefully constructed from the highest quality birdseye maple with ebonised trim adding to the overall impact of the piece.
Being very streamlined, standing at just 88cm in height, (which is just a shade under 3ft), this impressive Art Deco console Table has a design which still packs a visual punch, due in no small measure to both the iconic Art Deco shape and the materials which have been used, including of course the much sought after and admired birdseye maple with its highly distinctive grain. The design has been emphasized with tastefully applied ebonised trim, adding to the stunning nature of the table.
As you can see from the photos we have supplied, this Art Deco table has two practical and capacious drawers with the most delightful shape to the fronts, fitting snugly into the curved receptacles. As if by magic, the table appears to float above the base, but in fact it is of very sturdy construction. Artists and craftsmen working in the Art Deco style were consummate at making use of curves and that has never been more evident than in this lovely Art Deco table.
The dimensions of this Art Deco table are as follows: 88cm high x 105cm wide x 43cm deep. In inches, if you prefer, that would be: 2 feet, 11 inches high x 3 feet, 5 inches wide x 1 foot, 5 inches deep.

Angelica Kauffman, RA (1741 - 1807)
was a Swiss-born Austrian Neoclassical painter who had a successful career in London and Rome. Though born as "Kauffmann", Kauffman is the preferred spelling of her name in English; it is the form she herself used most in signing her correspondence, documents and paintings.
While Kauffman produced many types of art, she identified herself primarily as a history painter, an unusual designation for a woman artist in the 18th century. History painting, was considered the most elite and lucrative category in academic painting during this time period. Under the direction of Sir Joshua Reynolds, the Royal Academy made a strong effort to promote history painting to a native audience who were more interested in commissioning and buying portraits and landscapes.
Despite the popularity that Kauffman enjoyed in British society and her success as an artist, she was disappointed by the relative apathy that the British had towards history painting. Ultimately she left Britain for the continent, where history painting was better established, held in higher esteem and patronized.
The works of Angelica Kauffman have retained their reputation. By 1911, rooms decorated with her work were still to be seen in various quarters. At Hampton Court was a portrait of the duchess of Brunswick; in the National Portrait Gallery, a self-portrait. There were other pictures by her at Paris, at Dresden, in the Hermitage at St Petersburg, in the Alte Pinakothek atMunich, in Kadriorg Palace, Tallinn (Estonia).
is a hard and durable wood with a satinlike sheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially in marquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the family Rutaceae (rue family). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood of Chloroxylon swietenia.
The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes called yellow wood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Magnoliopsida, order Sapindales, family Rutaceae.
