Antique 19thC Black Forest Pedestal Table Some pieces of furniture are beyond description, but we will try. This stunner was created in Switzerland with craftsmanship which is almost defunct in today's world. The wood is oak. It is heavily carved with "faux bois" forest leaves and gnarly branches on the pedestal; hairy paw feet serve to support the tripod. Use it in an elegant foyer, beside a bed--any spot that longs for a real treasure. Although the piece is quite old, it's state of repair is excellent, no serious finish mars or wobbles. This is a testament to a fantastic woodworker.
