Description & Technical information

Note: One African Breccia marble top is original; the other is an 18th century replacement.
Pairs of side tables are extremely rare. The relatively small scale and elegant double scroll legs on this pair are also very unusual, making them particularly desirable. The patination and colour on both tables are outstanding.
