    The first three images show my coffee Art Deco style coffee table which I have had since 1985. I was walking along on a Sunday looking for garage sales in that year and I had just returned 3 coffee tables to the auction that I loved to go to. When I saw this long 60 inch table I phoned a friend and asked her to help me carry a table home. The bottom was light and she could carry it but I do not know how I carried the 60 lb. glass top home for the 20 blocks. I remember my arms were so tired later. I remember also asking Shawna if I should buy it and she said no, so I knew It was the best I could get if she said no, and to buy it right away. Over the years I showed some pics to art deco experts and they thought it was 1930 or so, I believe it is mid century, probably to possibly Canadian, mid 1960's or a bit earlier as they thought they had it for at least 20 years but I draw a blank after that. The glass is nearly 1/2 an inch thick and a good size at 60 inches.

    The last photo shows the tri stand round version which my friend, Todd's boss owns. I also have seen the round one on the old political talk show called Question Period in the later 90's to early 21st century. Hopefully someday I may get the whole story !

      OMG Fab table stands!!!

      I couldn't figure out what that was from the first page, I just had to pop in to see...I agree with you on the mid century...I think the look very "Dansk" but that's just my opinion. I used to have a beveled glass table back in the 70's but it was oval and on a manzanita tree stump. It was really pretty but my legs hated that darn table ;)

      This gets a love, love from me!!!

      I love the third pic with all the lovely pieces on the table. Everything is so exquisite!

      It just feels Danish to me Phil rather than Deco, also has an Eames feel about it too - who knows, either way and whatever period it is rather special, absolutely love it!

      Love the flamingos too!

      Even this ole antique collector luvs that table. Never broken, eh. Keep it away from ANY of my ex's if you want to keep it that way.

      are you secretly a muscle man from the 70's ? Carrying that top must have been excruciating. It's fabulous.

      I found what I thought was your table here. Funniest thing is, the designer is from Canada! Enrico Konig, he has designs in "the artful home". Beautiful furniture, only the dates of yours I believe are before his time. Very similar though.

      Thanks for your love Manikin !
