Vintage Hollywood regency capiz shell end table. Not your typical paint by numbers Italian Florentine style furniture. This is over the top glitz and glam from a bygone era of bold, experimental interior decor. From afar these pieces look gold, but get close and you’ll see how nearly every inch is a wax and wane melding of gold, chartreuse, bronze and brass hues. The massive capiz / abalone shells sealed under clear resin are prominent on both tiers. The capiz iridescence and overall texture of these tables evoke thoughts of a Louisiana alligator dipped in gold.
This capiz shell end table is a mix of molded and painted resin, gilt metal (legs), composite material (base platter), and capiz shells under clear resin. Hand written letters underneath, but we’re not certain of their meaning.
Tables sold separately. (2) available.
