Description

A vintage or antique writing table with marquetry inlay and tapered legs. I rescued this distressed table from a neighborhood store where it was sitting in a corner. One image shows what it looked like before a little wood wax. It measured 29 inches tall, by 28 inches wide and 18 inches deep. It was attractive before I applied the feed and wax. It has condition issues on the inlay section of the urn. It is also missing the drawer! I would like to restore it.
