An antique French patisserie table from the late 19th century with recently added stone top and painted iron scrolling base on casters. Created in France during the last quarter of the 19th century at a time when the Impressionists when roaming the countryside for inspiration, this work table, called a patisserie table, was used by a baker to make pastries (called patisseries in French). Showcasing a nearly square top, a recent addition made of stone imitating the effects of marble and granite, the table is raised on an eye-catching scrolling base. Painted in white with nicely distressed patina, the legs present elegant volutes mounted on casters, connected to one another through a simple cross stretcher with brass medallions on the sides. Boasting a weathered appearance revealing its great use and nice age, this French painted iron and stone top patisserie table circa 1890 will make for a great addition to any home, perhaps used in a kitchen!.
