Its solid through and runs on the extension flaps as well. The eagle is hand carved from a single piece of timber, gold gilt and looking very grand indeed. These pieces are highly collectable, very rare and never replicated because the craftsmanship involved simply doesnt exist anymore.
As mentioned the table has been French polished by a third-generation polisher, its an exquisite finish, there will naturally be age related chips around the edges and there is a very old repair to the table top right at the front, they have cut out and replaced a section of veneer, is a very old period repair so adds a little something to the authenticity and age of the piece. The drawer is full sized so runs all the way to the back.This table is ideally suited as a centre table, imagine a grand hallway and this is in the entrance with a silver charger or Rene Lalique bowl on top, talk about a wow factor! Its actually large enough to be used as a small extending dining table, romantically for two or with company and extended four with comfort and six very cosily. Width:- 78cm extending to 137cm.
