OUT OF IN­DIA

Lancashire Life - - ANTIQUES -

In­dian carved hard­wood ta­bles are a sale­room sta­ple, most of them dat­ing from the 1960s and none of them any­thing spe­cial to write home about. This one, how­ever, is some­what older and a real work of art. What sets it apart is the dense, geo­met­ric in­lay of mother of pearl and tinted ivory mounts and its ar­caded base sim­i­larly in­laid to rep­re­sent the win­dows in Mughal ar­chi­tec­ture. Sent from a pri­vate home for sale at Liver­pool auc­tion­eers Cato Crane, it sold to a tele­phone bid­der for £820.
