Serge Roche, Important center table

Serge Roche (1898-1988)

Important center table
Circa 1935

Important centre table. The base made of patina mirror veneered wood is composed by four large curved feet ended by lion paws made of sculpted wood. They are gathered at the centre by a reversed fire pot made of white sculpted wood as well. The scagliola top lies on a belt also veneered with patina mirrors. Two deep drawers are set into the small sides of the belt. This table has an incredible provenance: it was on display at the Brighton museum, England. This table is in very good original condition. All elements are original, only a few mirrors and some lacks on the top have been restored. The table was cleaned so that it could find its original brightness again.
