Stunning and rare Messenger Phipson side table with a gilt decorated cut round glass top. 
This centre piece of the table rests on four brass lions paw feet, with four stylised cherub (caryatid) that support each individually marked Phipson & Messenger 'leg'. These in turn support a Meiji Period gorgeous antique Japanese Bronze urn or vessel with high relief exotic birds and plants, and this in turn supports a thick cut glass gilt decorated top. All this is held in place by an ornate brass plate. This can be unscrewed so the glass maybe detached (for shipping purposes).
The Messengers were renowned as one of the top manufacturers of their time and pieces are held in Museums around the world.
A wonderful and very unique piece .

Will be dismantled for shipping, ie glass top removed.
Samuel Messenger & Sons was founded prior to 1835 in in Birmingham, England and moved to 19/20 Broad Street before 1888. The 1830's were very productive years for them. They were then making top end chandeliers, candelabra, lamps and gas fittings, and were an exhibitor at 1851 Great Exhibition and others.
