Beautiful Rosewood Melodeon Rosewood Library Table c. 1860. Extra large size and in outstanding condition. Said to have belonged to the first female attorney in Pittsburgh. This one was kept in the office of an antique store in Pittsburgh from the 1950's until 2013 when we acquired it - and this one has quite a story. Rosewood grain is infinetely nicer than our photos show. A truly stunning piece.
Imagine this tree being felled in Africa using hand-saws, being hauled from the jungle by an elephant because there were no railroads, loaded on a sailing ship and making its way to Detroit where it was turned into this beautiful piece of furniture. Try and find another one like this. Glass pulls are original. Finish has been carefully restored without losing any of its original patina. This is a veneered piece with grain painted legs - a job usually left to the master craftsman of the shop. Replacement casters safe for any flooring surface. Otherwise this one is as nice as can be found anywhere. Look at the carvings on the legs. Nice oversized drawer. We do have a little history on the piece - just send us an email.
This one has NEVER been insect, water or humidity damaged, and absolutely no musty smells. No smoking environment always - for the past 160 years. Nicest rosewood table out there - guarenteed - absolutely no disappointments with this one.
