This lyre table retains it’s original marble. The lyre is inset with figured mahogany as is the apron above which surrounds the marble. The base is elegantly detailed and complementary with the rectangular plinth. It is architecturally pleasing and balances in a complimentary fashion with the top. The base is finished with elegant scrolled feet, which retain their original brass casters.

The lyre form is an important design motif of the early to mid 19th century, and is highly coveted by the collector. Marble tops additionally are extremely desirable and practical.
