The base being the root of a tree, the top being formal and made from veneered walnut. The Victorians were the first to experiment with tree root furniture, and often placed these formal tops over the natural bases.
This table is exceptionally rare in that the base has a very intentional penis and testicles hanging discreetly underneath. These rare pieces were made for gentlemen's private rooms, clubs, etc.
The erotic art of this period is well documented, often surprisingly shocking and this piece is no exception.
Released from a private erotica collection and has never been seen on the market before.
