I'm picking up this pretty little gem today! I haven't had much time to check Craigslist
lately, but popped on for a quick minute last night and look what had just been listed.
I was thinking I didn't need it but had completely forgotten that my family room trunk
that we use as a coffee table, and I've had forever, was on the list to be replaced.
Let me count the reasons this couldn't be more perfect...
#1 - Greek Key - I could stop there!
#2 - it's square
#3 - open below
#4 - hidden extension trays
#5 - wood for the family room
#6 - $80!
This all sounded impressive too...
Schmieg and Kotzian antique coffee table, mahogany, 29 ¾ x 29 ¾. There are two hidden extension trays that pull
out to provide more space, each tray is 25 ½ x 10 inches deep.
If I show Mr. Simple a brass plate with the name of a prestigious furniture company
it appears like an investment piece that we could possibly make some money from one
day, and he's on board!
Schmieg and Kotzian was a prestigious furniture company in London from 1899 to 1907. After moving to
New York in the 1940's, the company continued in the traditional European apprentice system specializing
in hand made mahogany woodworking.
Would you leave it as is or paint it?
