This is a gorgeous and stunning rosewood floral carved oversized parlor stand that dates from the 1860s or a bit earlier. It has a gorgeous white and gray grain turtle top with an ogee beveled edge that is in outstanding condition. It sits upon a rosewood frame that is in unbelievable condition, with the rosewood black stain finish that you just don’t see any more. It would fit right in with a Belter parlor set or a J.J. Meeks set, and I’m not so sure it’s not one of those, anyway. It’s got nice detailed carving all around, floral carving in the centers of all the serpentine skirts, simplistic rosewood cutout legs with scrollwork like all good tables have, and the X cross-stretcher in the center with the double finial top and bottom, also with carving detail. It does have a few minor flaws here and there, but nothing serious, and it is a great example of Victoriana. The overall size is 40 inches wide, 28 inches deep, and 29.5 inches tall. Under the marble top, there is a pencil notation that the table originated in Mt. Desert Island, a fancy resort area of Maine where millionaires used to summer. The table will be crated for shipping.
