Coffee Table Made from Large Mid-Century Walnut Butler's Tray on Custom Stand

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An oversized Mid-Century Modern walnut butler's tray with four cut-out hand-holds, on a bespoke painted black wooden stand with Marlborough-style legs. The tray is unattached so it can be used separately. The stand has a slightly recessed solid top so this coffee table can be used to store coasters, cocktail napkins or papers and magazines underneath the tray.

The tray has an attractive grain pattern with a fine patina. It is made from thick cabinet-quality highly grained veneer.

This unusually large tray can be used to serve items anywhere inside and outside the home. It is a great cocktail or coffee table and, without the stand, as a centerpiece on a buffet, counter or kitchen island.

The simplicity of the tray's design and the warmth of its wood are emphasized by the modern black stand, the combination of the two making a bold sculptural statement.
