Antique French Kitchen Island, Desk or Work Table


This was obviously used in a commercial application, but for the life of me, I have no idea what for, but we just loved the overall look and proportions. There are two round holes off to the side and would like to be able to tell you what they were originally for, but that is just another mystery piece to the puzzle. The grey marble shows excessive wear, so you know the piece is both old and was used for a very long time, because faking old marble is really tough. Could have been a desk at a hotel reception, or used in a bakery? Whatever it was, the look is fantastic and I could easily see it in a kitchen, or even a craft room. We added the two pieces of old French pottery, just as a stop gap to fill the holes, which measure 7.5” in diameter and if nothing else, the old pottery adds a wonderful color. Two vases filled with fresh-cut flowers, would also look great.
