This Victorian inlaid marble top is called pietra dura which uses a large variety of different marbles organized to create a design or scene. The original checkerboard pattern is beautifully depicted. The round marble top rests in a solid walnut frame accented in ebony and gold highlights. The top’s wide edge has an incised pattern dramatically incorporating the gold and ebony. The boldly turned and carved pedestal has 3 ornately carved legs. Notice the dramatic flourishes, rondels, finials and pierced carvings. The finish is original and in excellent condition having a rich color and patina. The table rests on its original casters. The frame surrounding the inlaid marble top has some typical seam separation which often happens to wood over time. This does not affect the integrity of the table and only attests to its age. What a fine example of a wonderful Renaissance Revival pietra dura marble top table.
