Just Call Me Stubby
I love how the seller of this cut-down Rococo parlor table puts it in the listing:
This WAS once a magnificent Victorian rosewood center table with turtle marble top. Somewhere down the line a long time ago, some rocket scientist decided to make a coffee table out of it and cut the legs off of it. So there you have it, it is what it is and I have to sell it due to room constraints.
The end result of the cut job is a bit scary looking, though It’s not as bad a travesty as the cut-down Pottier & Stymus table that I’ve seen nor the cut-down ebony/ivory Belter table from the 1853 Crystal Palace Exhibition.
I think this table walks around the house at night …
