19th Century Octagonal End Table with Postage Stamp Decoupage Top is an unusual example of whimsical furnishings that appeared during the Napoleon III Period of prosperity in France.  This example, rendered in solid French walnut with gracefully bowed legs tipped with lions' paw feet and a lower shelf, features a round apron accented with brass molding and cast bronze lion's heads, atop which is placed the octagonal surface surrounded by brass half-round molding and inset glass, under which the owner was allowed to request customized decoupage art consisting of stamps collected from the owner's travel.  The original owner, who commissioned the piece, even had his initials DB formed from the unique artistic method.

Truly One Of A Kind!

Circa 1870
