This incredible piece of folk art is a table top decorated with layers upon layers of finely cut and appliqued veneer woods. The effect is something like inlay, but the individual pieces are glued over each other instead of being set in. All the colors are from the various shades of wood used. The design includes the words "Bless This House O Lord We Pray Amen". The surface has a clear, glossy finish with slight texture from the layers of veneer. It is 36" in diameter by 1" thick, with screw eyes on the back for hanging.
The table top itself is probably from the early 1900's, with a partial label on the back from a New York City shop. The age of the decoration is unknown, but looks to be approximately mid-20th c. There is a signature that appears to have been applied with a rubber stamp. There are a few very small places where bits of veneer are loose or chipped, and one piece where the finish is lost, as seen in the closeup photos. Overall, the condition is excellent and it is a striking and unique piece. Inventory Code: CCOA. Closeup of the center ... "Bless This House" ... "O Lord We Pray" ... Closeup with signature ...
