These pretty tables have a delicate inlaid floral and foliate pattern on their tops, with further decoration running down the legs, and boast a Reuge Swiss movement musical box assembly on the inside, activated by a key on the base of the tables. They have a little storage space inside, suitable for storing jewellery, writing paper, envelopes, pens etc. The first table is still functional and plays the Neapolitan melody'Torna A Surriento' when the lid is raised.
Unfortunately, the lid on the second table has come adrift from the main body of the table. However, these exquisite little side tables still retain an abundance of original charm and remain a highly desirable collectible. The approximate dimensions of each table are as follows.
Table top: 17.5 x 17.5 x 17.5 ins. Commensurate with their age, the tables have naturally sustained one or two superficial light chips/marks over the years but, barring the aforementioned lid issue, are still in an excellent used condition. Given the fragility of this item, collection only from North London please. Please see all photos for further details. However, should you require a close-up or further info on any point, I shall be more than happy to supply more photos if so required.
The white marks on the wood in Photo 4 is only a reflection, nothing more! She was an incredibly stylish woman, who cared for each and every one of her belongings with a great passion, storing the majority of items individually, whether luxury or high street, in appropriate bags and/or tissue paper. However, given the fact that some things may have been stored for a while, they may very well require a quick rinse through to refresh before wearing. Each item will be thoroughly inspected prior to listing, photographed and described in detail, with any flaws being pointed out. Please don't forget to add me to your Favourite Sellers list as I shall be listing new items on a regular basis.
