Very rare complete set of 4 antique Italian gilt folding tray tables, with original storage stand. Dating from circa 1880 and originating from Florence, these wooden tables have a serpentine edge, are lightweight with intricately carved patterns all over, and hand painted with gilt detail. Each table has a brass carry handle which also acts as a hanging ring when the tables are stored, and the X-frame base folds flat. The stand is marked 'Made in Italy' on the bottom, and has a brass strip across the top to make the hanging/removal of the tables easy. Perfect for use as occasional/side tables, or even for a fancy picnic :) In totally original condition, with minor losses.
Each table measures: 51cm tall x 62cm wide x 39cm deep
Table & stands measure: 80cm tall x 30cm wide x 39cm deep
