Antique French console table, sofa table or? Our belief is, that this antique French table was probably used in a commercial application, possible as a desk, where you might register in a small boutique hotel? Difficult to pinpoint the exact usage, but we can you this about our antique French console; is that it is very old and our Old Plank artisans, completely disassembled the French antique console and rebuilt it, so that, it does not look like this French console table was ever touched. There is evidence of gilding on the table and if you are so inclined, our Old Plank finishing department can add some gilding back, all the while making it appear original. Please note the one-piece walnut top and there is a twist to it and certainly not to the degree where something would fall over, but noticeable all the less.
