I've been moving things around a bit at Linderhof and decided that I needed a new table to go beside a leather chair in the sunroom. Not a big table for the sunroom isn't big. But an antique table (of course!). And either mahogany or walnut -- I'm not really an oak person.
Sometimes it takes a looong time to find just the right piece at just the right price. But not for this little table -- and I found it right here in my little town on the prairie!!!
Going downtown last week, there in the window of one of the antique shops was this dear little table. . .
It's Victorian (dating between 1850 and 1870), it's walnut and has a great grain on the top. It's a two drawer Victorian work table with great turning on the pedastal. And it's perfect for beside one of the leather chairs in the sunroom.
I love my new table and I love the fact that the search was short.
I also love Show and Tell and so glad to be joining Cindy this Friday.
I'm so glad you were able to find the table in your "Hometown on the Prairie"! It appears to be a "perfect fit" for the area. Have a wonderful weekend!
Oh what a great piece! very unusual, like the fact it is slim but has a drawer. It is fun when u find what u want!
Your new table is beautiful.
Oh I love the table, Martha. It's really beautiful. Love the wood too...Christine
You have a great eye. The table is stunning. One can always tell a quality piece like yours. And the lamp, LOVE IT! So many of the blogs feature items from the big box stores - the Made in China look. It is refreshing to see your post with a truly beautiful and quality piece. Thank you!
It looks perfect and what a cozy spot to have a night cap. It looks like you love books like I love books. sit relax and enjoy
That is a PERFECT table - you could hunt for a very long time for it, but found it right at home - perfect!
If your taste in tables is how a person should be judged- you rate an A+.
Martha, this is perfect! Beautiful, I'm happy it found it's way to Linderhof!
I love your new table! What a great score!
I've been looking for one just like that forever...we need another small table for next to our bed, for the hubby's side!
