This fine example features a beveled oval top of burl walnut inlaid with fine lines of lemon wood and rosewood. Eight diamonds formed of tiny inlaid squares of lemon wood, ebony, rosewood, and boxwood surround the outer edge of the table. The table top rests on a pedestal formed by four turned columns joining outswept legs with scrolled feet and is finished with a central finial. At 21 inches in height, this handsome piece is ideal as a coffee table. c. 1870.
