The table is presented upon four gracefully curved legs, with floral accents embellishing their knees, and carved leaves atop the hoof-style feet. The custom painted finish is a soft taupe with cream accents. It is painted about all sides, allowing this piece to be floated within a room should you choose. This late 18th century French table would make a delightful Bonheur-du-jour (small-sized ladies writing desk), yet a versatile enough piece to be useful in just about any room in your home.Dimensions
