    I'm thinking about buying this console table for $110. The style is neo classical, but I feel like the carving style of the eagle is slightly sus... It looks almost Asian to me.


    thanks everyone, decided not to get it :)

    That 'Greek key' ornamentation looks more than 'almost Asian' to me.

    The "Greek key" is a "fundamental" Chinese design motif. That plus the treatment of the feather carving and the color of the wood certainly makes one suspect Asian.

    Do you think it can still be antique though, or might be a newer reproduction in the style of neo classical furniture?

    Lol yeah, agreed. I used to be just fine when I stuck to jewelry, then I got addicted to furniture, grandfather clocks, and rugs.

    Good to be back! Hoping to stay for a while. I'm trying not to thrift anymore until I sell some stuff, but I have some great finds to show off still.

    Seems like a good buy but I would probably save the money for something old.
