Direct from France, a very large and substantial 19th century hand carved oval table!
The massive base is a work of art and features elaborate hand carvings of lion heads atop each of the four legs. QUITE RARE, we’ve only found a few of these in the past 15 years!!

NOTE: All of our antiques are direct from Europe. I personally select each item for the quality, design and unique characteristics that you will always find in our distinctive inventory at Geaux Vintage Antiques. …” with all that, why ‘Geaux’ anywhere else?” …
Good condition for its age, normal signs of age, use, dings, scratches, imperfections. Table could potentially expand to a very large size, as there are extension slides and legs underneath; extra leaves are not included. Included multiple photos should be considered as an integral part of the description.
Due to the larger size, this item requires freight service. White glove service, fully insured, FOB Shreveport, delivered and placed inside your home (first floor only). Typically, 5-7 weeks, depending on your location. Free pick-up is also available at our location in Shreveport, LA.
