Rococo Card Table - Sweden, 1750
A period Rococo Elm wood card table with fruit wood inlays from the 1750's and in exquisite condition. The gently shaped cabriole legs support the serpentine apron and fruit wood drawer under which the folding top reveals the elm and fruit wood playing surface. The left back leg swings out to support the extended table top.
Card Table Open
The card table opened for playing. The opened table is supported by an expanding apron rather than a swing leg. This makes for a far more stable piece.
