Furniture from The Drawing Room of Newport

Item number 4225 is a console: The top is faux malachite on wood and the eagle is plaster painted to look like weathered bronze. Very effective. Size: 22" deep, 45" long and 33" tall. This eagle came to us in Newport from a private museum source who some how managed to make a cast identical to one of the eagles from a console located in the State Dining Room of The White House in Washington. There are several of these consoles in the White House Dining Room: a large one with two eagle supports and more than one single eagle console table. This was done more than 30 years ago and we are not sure of the circumstances. The person who cast this eagle has passedaway. The top would be attached to the wall and supported by the head of the eagle. Price: $3,500.00.
