Portuguese Colonial Rosewood Marble Top TableMid 19th century
A Portuguese colonial rosewood round side table with a marble overlapping top. The apron with a beautiful pattern of foliate and stringing white cedar inlay work. The base has four curved spindles surrounding a robust shaft that features two smaller donut-shaped rings at the top and two bigger ones at the bottom. The table is supported on four cabriole legs. The spindles and the legs have lozenge shaped white cedar inlay.
The table is in good condition and has been lovingly restored and finished to its former glory using a traditional form of French polishing and waxing. The Indian rosewood that this piece has been made of has a naturally occurring dark shade giving sharply defined contrast to the white cedar inlay work.
