An exceptional pair of coffin trestle side tables.
A super & highly unusual pair, once ecclesiastical coffin stamnds & now a stylish pair of side tables of excellent form. In the most unusual & totally original flash-copper finish, they sit on shapely feet, are finished with cast plaques to the centres & are topped with thick plate glass tops.
This is the only pair I've ever seen in this finish, just so exceptionally decorative!

Wear commensurate with age, good overall, unrestored with one small non relevant split near one of the joints at the base (last image), not noticable. As per the second from last image, he bases of these tables folded for storage within the church when not in use & this does make them slightly unstable, they're just one of those things where function suffers just slightly in the name of style... (not unstable to the point where they will fall over or anything like that but they do move a little once up as the bases are sprung for folding rather than fixed as with a traditional side table).
