Gypsy Tables were given their name as they are the type commonly used at fairgrounds etc by the fortune teller. The velvet top making it easy to read cards etc.
This table has nice detail to the three legged base which has a central finial and gilt detail.
The top is covered in old pink velvet/draylon fabric which has a tatty tasselled fringe edge.
Was this used for fortune telling? Who knows…but its an eye catching and unusual table. Very shabby chic, reasonably sturdy. Please see photos for details of marks to the table top.
Size 62cm high. Diameter of top 56cm.
