Of great architectural quality, in simplified Rococo taste; raised on four short, beautifully incorporated cabriole legs and fitted with original Greek verde antico marble top. This excellent piece is a very fine example of early 20th Century elegant traditionalist design with modernist leanings. Labeled.
