19th Century French Renaissance Writing Table with Dolphins immortalizes the sea creatures in classic Parisienne fashion, harkening back to the legend of old when a dolphin rescued two trapped children from an island in the Seine River during a freak flood.  This example, rendered by talented hands from solid old growth oak, displays a fully gadrooned top, carved embellishments all around (making it perfect for the center of the room), urn pediments for support, and of course the dolphin feet for a whimsical yet timeless effect.

Circa 1860s
