Description

Small yet substantial antique walnut side table from the Veneto region of northern Italy with one drawer and four stretchers connecting the legs. The square legs have hand-carved scalloped details running along the edges and the drawer has embossed rosettes around the edges and around the round iron knob. Two rows of four iron rivets visible on the well-worn top add to the authentic rustic character of this table. The two pieces of molding below the top on the sides of the case are not original to the piece.
