My Weekend Chinoiserie Find
This weekend I found this very elegant vintage 1960s Baker Chinoiserie coffee table in Georgetown. It is molded brass and glass with a Chinese Chippendale style turned wood octagonal base. The wood base has a tortoiseshell finish on faux bamboo. The same Baker coffee table but with a pie crust top and mahogany finish is currently for sale on 1st dibs for $2475 here. (I snagged it for $325.00) In the picture above it is happily ensconced in my little sun room. Click on the picture to enlarge. The picture just below is it at the store. The last picture is its cousin at 1st dibs. As the description on 1st dibs says, it is absolutely splendid.
