Antlers were already used in the late 15th century as a source material for clothes hooks, storage racks and chandeliers, the so-called "lusterweibchen". Furniture made by antlers have been invented in the 19th century and can therefore be assigned to the Biedermeier period. They were exclusively made for the European nobility to decorate their hunting castles and various manors. Antique furniture of this kind is very rare and much sought after, with somewhat of a revival over the past decade or so with many magazines showing interiors decorated with such items. This particular table dates to the early part of the last century, comfortably seats for persons or can be used just as a centre or side table. Very simple oak table top, antler horns as table legs, a truly rare item.

Condition: very slight stress fracture to the table top, otherwise perfect

Dimensions: 116cm wide, 83cm deep, 77cm high
