This is a great table, it's a smaller scale, but it's so comfortably would seat up to six it's round and it's done in a ivory. What they're calling ivory, but I wouldn't really say, ivory it's because it's much more of a stained kind of a pickled stain than a painted finish. It is definitely nowhere near white. I can show you a piece of white paper next to the top. Give you an idea, it's really kind of almost an oatmeal color. It is not anywhere near white. It's a stain to finish kind of a pickled stain finish, but it's really pretty.
It's got a buttery cream quality to it, a lot of antiquing in it. This is done in Asheboro and short-grain Primavera, and that is done in a marquetry design here on the top. So you have the short green Primavera, which gives you this really tight grain, linear, look and then the ash burl is going to be in all the squares within the marquetry, and that has that great swirling look. So it gives you a lot of interest and different textures of design. Going on the great feature on this table is the lazy susan or we call it the lazy Daisy, because the president of our company's wife, Susan has it has a lazy Daisy and they call it that because she doesn't like the name of lazy susan. I don't know why, because she's not the table, it's great to have this inset, because it gives you all the table space when you need it, but when you're trying to pass things around, you certainly can use it rather than having one that's sitting.
On top of the table that takes up table space and impedes your where your table settings are, it has a beautifully shaped apron lot of carving on it a little bead carving along the edges. Just very soft feminine, almost like a feeling of lace, is how they describe it in the collection it does have some lassie rubbed through and some metallic tipping to kind of accent, all the carvings. You will see that this finish has like a stain rub on rub off quality to it. So you will see spots where you will see darker areas and lighter areas, and that is meant to be like that. It's meant to look antique and, like it's been worn over time, and there are some you know darker areas to it. I've got a beautiful pedestal base it's about four great feet on it's like little-rounded club feet with a great carving like leaf carving. That comes out and then just a platform here for your pedestal, really nice old-world, carving design to it simple yet very elegant.
