This is a stunning late 19th century antique French burr walnut and floral marquetry serpentine card table with ormolu mounts, circa 1870 in date.
The shaped burr walnut top has line inlay encompassing an exquisite floral marquetry bouquet of country flowers, and a stunning gilt bronze border. It has decorative ormolu cast mask bosses to the sides and is raised on serpentine legs terminating in leafy ormolu sabots.
The hinged top opens to reveal a green baize lined interior for playing cards and the top swivels around to reveal a chess board.
It is a superb piece which is sure to get lots of attention wherever it is placed.
In excellent condition having been beautifully restored and the baize relined in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
