23″ x 30″ Table of Conundrums is an altered piece, fully functional and ready to inspire a smile. This antique table has beautiful simple lines and wood tone. The top was slightly discolored (someone had some beverages on the bare wood), and called for assistance. I love the fade and age of old book pages and felt that rather than stripping the top, adding a layer of interest might be better.
The book was printed in 1902 and was falling apart, so not to worry book lovers, I’d never kill a book without consideration. “Conundrums, Riddles, Puzzles and Gags,” by John Ray was published by Frederick J. Drake & Company. The pages are full of one-liners, jokes and puns, many of which are demonstrative of the time period in which the book was published.
Sealed and safe for reading or serving tea on.
