small side table or desk (writing table) caught our eye with the luminous color of the solid walnut
torsades, or twisted legs. Photographs do not convey the beauty or the depth of
color and grain that they display. The same color and wood surround the inlaid
top. This is a darker walnut veneer, surrounded by a narrow light colored
veneer trim, probably popular, creating a striking appearance, that resembles
marquetry in the French tradition. It has one wide drawer under the top, with
the original key and lock.

all of our antique furniture, this Louis XIII style blends very well with
gothic, neo-renaissance and Louis XIV chairs, all of which provide that country
house, chateau or castle ambiance. Owing to its size, it could serve as a table between two beds or as a stand-alone table at bedside now that mattresses are taller and therefore closer to the height of this table.
