antique oriental hand carved tables

 

      These tables are definately one of a kind, never to be seen anywhere else.  The craftsmanship is out of this world.  The battle scene carved on these tables shows great detail.  Right down to the horses mane.  They originated from  Japan.  Brought to the United States by a Navy officer during World War1 , now being offered to the lucky individual who desires to possess them.  Made of teakk wood and rosewood. They are in excellent condition! I hate to part with them but must downsize, don't have room to take with me and I hate to see them sit in storage.

I don't know how old this post is, but I have the literal exact same set. We purchased it brand new in 1993 in Okinawa, Japan from a furniture store. We were stationed there with the Marine Corps. I can not remember how much we paid for the set, but I think it was about $1000. The furniture store had many of these sets - a lot of people on base would purchase them. It's made of teak, oak and rosewood. I hope that helped...?
