Location: Dallas

Marquetry by itself is difficult to apply to a flat surface, but far more difficult on curved surfaces, and in the case of this nightstand, the oval top is the only flat surface provided! Trimmed with a pierced brass rail, it features a single cabinet and subtly scrolled legs tipped with ormolu mounts. Floral and foliate motifs predominate the marquetry on top and all around. Crafted primarily from mahogany veneers, with olive and satinwood for adornment.
Circa 1900-1910.
Measures 27 x 16 x 13.
