Wormley? Nelson? McCobb? Baughman? Aarrgghh!!! Status: Driving Me Nuts.
Seems like I've seen a bazillion of tables like these in the past and I never paid much attention to the attribution...and of course now I can't find a comparable to save my life. Ain't that just the way it goes?
Anybody got an "In the manner of..."?
It's obviously a high quality table. I'm pretty sure the top surface is Rosewood but
needs a light refinish, which it'll be getting as soon as the weather breaks. I can't
find any distinguishing marks on the bottom. Just the ubiquitous scribbley scratch
of hand written "code".
I acquired this table Sunday when I answered an ad for a couple of chairs and a
table on C-list. I ended up buying one of the chairs, it's ottoman, the listed marble
(broken in two) top table, another Kroehler mid century style side table and this. It
was all a great deal too. The Kroehler table and this table were not included in
the ad. I spotted them in the garage and well, asked if they were available as
well. Yup. They seemed happy to be getting them out of the way. People love
getting Cash for stuff they forgot they had and might never use again.
I think after a little love this table is going to be just drop dead gorgeous!
