As an owner of 4 Merklen tables and being a big fan of their work, I just about fell out of my chair when I came across this familiar Merklen table that has been completely painted – Pink. Thank goodness they saw fit to spare the brass feet and the griffins supporting the second tier table top. I may be up for a rescue …

Here are two of the [unpainted] Merklen’s that I own:

    Pink! That is something my grand parents (rest their souls) would have done. They painted any “bare” wood with awful colors. I’d be hesitant to take on restoring that one. I did my wife’s Hunzinger rocker that has twisted spindles… took me over 40 hours and I probably lost half the brain cells in my head due to stripper fumes.
