Fornasetti Style Faux Malachite Table

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a very well-made and highly decorative cube in faux malachite. Seemingly hand-painted, the malachite technique is tiled to dramatic effect. The cube shape is mounted on an ebonized wood plinth. Although the faux malachite technique is reminiscent of Piero Fornasetti, the weight and quality of this table is similar to the work of Karl Springer.
