About this object

Tops are elaborately inlaid with leaf scrolls in various colored woods. In the center of each is an elaborate cipher surmounted by the Imperial cleft crown. The larger table has free variation of MF. Legs carved in the Russian style with a scrolling ornament descend to feet set at an angle. A cross rail and extentions to the foot provide additional support to the legs. Carved rosettes decorate the junctions of these parts.
