An Empire Style Satin Birch Pier Table
An Empire Style Satin Birch Pier Table from the first half of the 20th Century. The domed pediment surmounted with a gilt metal eagle and centrally decorated with classical figures. The upper mirror flanked to either side by faux marble columns topped with gesso capitals. The upper mirror sits on an attractive green polished marble top. Beneath sits a single central drawer, again decorated with gilt metal detail and supported by two tapering legs. The legs topped with gilt metal mounts and terminating in period style lions paw feet. Both legs with attractive brass beading to their front edges. The lower rear uprights housing the lower mirror between them. An interesting an imposing, functional and decorative piece of furniture. Would look great in a hall, reception room, bathroom or alcove where it will throw lots of light from the two mirrors.
