This sculptural table was produced in a number of 200, it is the last number of the serie and is stamped at the bottom 200/200. Made from African Walnut which has a beautiful warm dark brown tone and a very smooth and subtle surface when carved. The choice of wood makes the round shapes stand out perfectly and creates nice exposed dark shadow lines which accentuetes the forms. The glass top lays loose on the base in order to be able to also use it as a sculpture, table is very solid and stable. In excellent original condition.
