Brass plaque under proper right swing arm:

Trove Laguna new bronze line with Belgian horsehair satchel

This is part of Trove’s new bronze line, table base modeled after an ancient Chinese root …

Atop sits an18th century traveling trunk made of horsehair, hand stitched, with

a hand forged lock…found in Belgium…


Though Trove has been around for several years, has a wonderful collection of

estimable antiques, riveting one of a kind finds, and a masterful artistic mix of objects

“poetically juxtaposed”, it really seems to illustrate to me the “Rough Luxe” trend

that was written about here….It’s definitely a trend I love.
