# 5499. A table and chair: Russian, made between 1880 and 1900. Carved and painted wood. The size of the table is 42" x 27" x 29" tall. The single chair size: the seat is 18" x 14" and the back is 39" tall. This two piece set is in the folkloric style. The construction is closest to the American Modern Gothic style. The hand painted decorations are remaniscent of the painted Russian boxes found on the market throughout the decades. This set was possibly from an International Exhibition such as the Columbia Exposition in Chicago in 1893 where Russia participated with decorative arts from their country. Condition: considerable scuffs, scratches to both the table and chair. The "moon" shown on the table is probably an afterthought to 'repair' a mar to the painted surface. There are old splits to the back of the chair. The set should be cleaned and the painted surfaces should be restored. This is a rare set, uncommon to the market. P.O.R.
