Octagonal Table

Octagonal Table

Mackay Hugh Baillie Scott

Before 1899


New Palace, Darmstadt, Germany

“The octagonal table . . . is in a lighter shade of green than the other furniture, the relief for the brighter colouring of the decoration being produced by a dark background of a circular form on each of its panels.

Here the ivory lilies are in toned white on a black ground, slightly modelled in relief and tipped with orange. The top of this table is inlaid in tones of green with a pattern of hearts. ” — Baillie Scott
