I suppose it makes sense to begin with the demilune table since that's what everything is sitting on or decorated around.
It has a dark green marble top...love marble.
I forgot how much I like this piece of furniture until I took pictures of it. I guess sometimes I am so used to looking at something that I quit looking altogether and that was the case with this table. I kind of forgot about it having these bucolic painted scenes all around it....probably what drew me to it in the first place.
It's missing some of the metal trim that frames the paintings. I saved the piece but where it is...don't know.
Now for the sheep painting; since I got quite a few emails asking about it. This painting was purchased from an art dealer in Holland via Ebay. It is antique (at least that's what I was told) and it is an oil on board rather than canvas.
On top of the table is another similar styled chest. This to had a marble top at one time but it was broken during one of our moves so the top is disguised with a bunch of fake greenery. It features elaborate marquetry veneering as does the entry piece behind it.
In this pic, you can see more of the marquetry and detail of my entry table. See that post HERE.
Besides having the miniature chest on top of the table I've got a buffet lamp flanking either side. I added unique shades that mimic the diamond design marquetry on the chest.
Each lamp has a tassel
I decided to put the Spode tray with the saying above in my Etsy shop and keep the Vista tray below.
This is the backstamp...I'm going to teach you all how to read those diamond marks in another post.
I hung these mirrors upside down...they look better with this arrangement than right side up.
