Executed in gorgeous rosewood and rosewood veneers, the top is finished with a lipped edge and is raised over beautifully sculpted and molded legs that are firmly secured to the structure with enameled steel stretchers.
The underside is sealed with the original Mellemstrands label, the Norway furniture control seal and a stamped Bruksbo brand.

Original finish; it has been cleaned and oiled, but there are a few slightly more matte areas present on the top surface; there are also three "dents" in the top that may not convey in the photos - we can send video or additional images upon request; a few minor use indicators, dings or light abrasions. Sturdy and very strong. A fine presentation.
