A Marble Turtle Top Table
As a part of the Boulle family of furniture, this table is quite unique with an unusual base. The marble rests on a cut-out frame which is attached to a bulbous pedestal that becomes part of an elaborate base. You can see by the photos how much construction went into making the base. The size of the marble is quite large so it would hold a lamp and some decorative pieces like a standing picture, vase of flowers or other objects.
Measurements: 3-1/4”h. x 5-1/4”long x 3-1/2”d.
Circa: 19th Century
