How Original Do You Want It?
Here’s a great Eastlake table that looks like it just came off the showroom in 1875 and I think it looks quite wonderful. The question is whether you want it to look gorgeous or like it should look 130 years later? My guess is that this table probably looked like someone threw it out a window before they went to work on it – at least I hope so, since it is completely redone. The question is whether Rare Victorian readers hold out for pristine original pieces or are happy to put a fully restored piece in their home?
Bidding for this table starts at $948 and ends on February 10th.
