Painted Drink Table Made of 19th Century French Letter Box Raised on Custom Base

A French 19th century painted and giltwood letter box raised on custom stand, perfect to be used as a drink table. This French drink table is made of a 19th century letter box, painted in a soft color and accented with gilded details, such as the trim, lateral handles and escutcheon. The box opens to reveal a tin-lined interior, offering a convenient storage opportunity. The stylized shield-shaped escutcheon is topped with a semi-circular motif, whose delicate curve balances the general linearity of the piece perfectly. Raised on a custom base, this French letter box from the 19th century will be complement any décor beautifully, perhaps used on a desk to store documents or placed next to an armchair to be used as a drink table.
