I thought I’d share this somewhat unusual Rococo marble-top center table that I recently had the opportunity to purchase, which I didn’t, due to the price being too high for today’s market.  The overall form is a round center table but the edges are scalloped.  The base is a moderate quality Rococo design but what really stands out is the marble itself.  At least 4 different marble patterns and colors were cut and cemented together to form a kaleidoscopic pattern (not sure whether this qualifies as pietre dura, technically speaking).  I was really attracted to the table but was not going to pay what was being asked.  I even asked them if they wanted me to offer it to RareVictorian.com readers to purchase, but they declined, saying that they would only sell to me privately.  Hmmmm… I wasn’t sure what to make of that.
