Folk Art Table with Spool Legs, Boot-Shaped Shelf

If your interests run to early, quirky and totally cool, this one-of-a-kind folk art table may be for you. I found it in Santa Fe, New Mexico, freshly acquired from a local home. It’s a three-tiered piece with a lavishly carved top, spool legs on ball feet, and — my favorite feature — a boot-shaped shelf on the middle tier.

The surface appears to be original. As the photos show, there is miner paint loss to the table. But this is a piece that’s clearly been used and enjoyed for many years. Perfect for displaying small treasures, as a lamp table between two chairs, a bedside table, or as a piece of folk art in and of itself.

The table stands 29-1/2” h, is 26” w and 13-1/2” d. Maker unknown. Probably made between 1910 and the 1920s or early 1930s.
