Sold! Empire Library Console Table

A lovely couple from Orillia drove down and, with masks, picked up this piece. I was so in love with it, but it was to big for my little livingroom/dining room.

DESCRIPTION: If you google “Antique Empire Console value” you’ll see they can cost over a thousand dollars. I’m selling this one for $250. It’s a genuine antique, so it’s only natural to have some signs of wear. It has been lovingly repaired and hand-painted in black and grey mineral paint, adorned with antique glass knobs, and covered with several layers of protective coating. The drawer features dove-tail joinery and has been stencilled to be extra-fancy. The date “March 1934″ has been scrawled on the back of the drawer along with some measurements and calculations which might mean that 1934 is the year it was repaired and in fact, it was built earlier. Perfect for a large foyer or under a TV as shown. Can also function as a standing desk, room divider, or sofa table. DIMENSIONS (approx.): 42″ wide x 21″ deep at top (23” at feet) x 37″ tall. Drawer interior is 33” wide x 17-1/2” deep x 3” high.
