19th Century French Neoclassical~Directoire Rosewood Center Table was hand-crafted by master artisans during the heyday of the Belle Epoque period!  Created from exotic imported rosewood, also called kingwood for its majesty and superiority over other furniture woods, its rich ebony grain patterns on mahogany toned backgrounds create a look like none other.  This example is just the perfect size to greet guests as a center table, to serve as an ersatz game table, or even formal dining for two to four if so desired!  The design includes a shallow apron with elongated beading all around affording a generous 26.5" knee clearance.  Support is provided by an elegantly contoured center pedestal which is supported in turn by four gracefully scrolled legs that reach outwards to elegant, solid cast brass feet fitted with casters to make the table easy to reposition.
