Sublime and extrordinary...This is one of the very very most rare art forms. The painting is achieved by using the wings of butterflies to create the images.

The frame is walnut, and the painting is protected by glass.

This table was one of the Antique Treasures which belonged to King Farouk of Egypt.

The painting is a circlet of SCENIC VIGNETTES with a smaller painting of
a single butterfly painted between each
vignette.

CONDITION, THE PAINTING, FRAME & GLASS ARE IN SUPERB, EXCELLENT, MINT CONDITION.

The table top is designed to fit over the base made of monkey pod wood. As it is from a semi-tropical climate it developed a thin, short slit after being brought to USA. The thin slit may be seen in a photo here.

In 1952 after King Farouk was overthrown, Southeby's appraised and
sold the priceless possessions King Farouk left behind in his palaces.

News reporters called this "THE SALE OF
THE CENTURY".

Research shows that a table similar to this was sold by Southeby's of London for more than $2 million about 2 years ago.

*Measurement: 25" Tall 21" Diameter
