Marchand Glass Tortoise Shell Painted Glass Coffee Table, circa 1940Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Elegantly constructed coffee table by Marchand Glass Company. The rectangular cocktail table is fabricated from reverse tortoise shell painted glass and features flecks of patinated bronze embedded in the black or dark brown surface. The tabletop has a raised bevelled edge surrounding the centre and the sides and legs have indented borders running along the edges, adding definition to the opacity of the piece.
Please note there is some lifting underneath the glass located along the ledge of the table. This doesn't affect the tables surface, only changes the visual effect of the glass and reverse painted tortoise shell. We've adjusted the price to reflect this issue. Due to the nature of the mirrored, reflective surface this has proved difficult to capture photographically.
This attractive piece would be a great addition as part of a classic or contemporary living room, den, man (or woman!) cave, family room, office or bedroom. It would also be an apt choice in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel lobby, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
