Slate Table


Not on view

This table is distinguished for combining an imported Swiss top with an American- made base. The octagonal top’s slate center is framed by a marquetry border with heraldic motifs in a style characteristic of workshops in eastern Switzerland. The piece may have been used as either a dressing table or a serving table.
