A FINE BIEDERMEIER BIRCH AND GREEN MARBLE PIER TABLE
Northern Europe, probably Austria c. 1825
Item # 509LMP28


The design of this fine Biedermeier pier table distinguished by the bold cyma-curved legs tapering gently in all three dimensions to lend a nice sense of balance and movement in an otherwise austere form.  The angularity is striking and allows it to meld flawlessly with even the most modern interior, the golden glow of the birch contrasting sharply with the original green marble top.  Birch veneers dress the table over the hard pine secondary surfaces, most of the structure joined with large and finely cut hand dovetails - an outline of these is visible beneath the veneers along the sides of the waist and openly along the back corners.  It remains in overall outstanding original condition.

Measurements:  32 1/2" H x 37 3/4" W x 19 3/8" D

Condition Report:
Surface refinished with light wear.  Light scratches to the original marble top.  Old cracking to surfaces.  L-tabs added to reverse, probably at one point to hold a mirror.
