About

This charming table is finished on all four sides, has an inset marble top, bronze drawer pull, and bronze sabots on the front legs. It comes from the historic Livingston-Griggs house on Summit Avenue in St. Paul. It may have been among the many furnishings purchased from Jansen in Paris. Mrs. Griggs’ decorator at the time was Gertrude Robinson, known professionally as Miss Gheen, and socially as Mrs. Grenville Robinson. In landing the job she beat out Elsie de Wolfe, who, without naming names, complained about not being hired in her 1935 autobiography After All.
