This generously-sized Egyptian Revival table is more than two feet wide and just as high, creating a versatile work of furniture art crafted in wood with inset bas-relief resin panels. Flanked by ornate columns, a door covered with hieroglyphics opens to reveal a single shelf for storage. Finished in faux gold leaf, this is a true statement piece recalling ancient dynasties!
ANCIENT EGYPTIAN FURNISHINGS: typical furniture items __most chairs/stools tended to be lower than today's standards and some were intended for someone to sit "indian style" rather than the way we sit in chairs today (typically). Beds were also low to the ground--like a platform bed. Furniture was simple and embellished according to social status/money.
