Lord Raffles Lion Tea Table
Decent enough for a carved table
We have the Lord Ruffles tea table and coffee table. They're very different. The coffee table is an amazing showpiece--everyone loves it, and the carving is very finely detailed. The tea table is not as well carved (the lion heads are in a somewhat different style as well sa the feet, not as detailed nor as good looking). The color is also very red, much redder and lighter than expected; it is lighter by far than most cherry finishes.
Our particular table came with a blemish, which we rotated toward the wall when setting it up.
The table seems sturdy enough. I'm not a huge fan of the lip, but the extra shelf underneat is nice. We use it with two corner chairs outside a bathroom.
All in all the table is okay, not great. The coffee table we bought is GREAT.

not as seen in picture
I love the design of the lions of the one in the picture, however the table I recieved ,
lions carved are far different than the picture, that was a BIG dissapointment,
the faces of the lions on my table look evil and not like the lions in the picture,, my husband thought it look like the devil and not a lion......not impressed with whoever
the carver was that did this table........and Tuscano should put the picture of the present table on hand as the table sent to me does not match the picture of the lions faces on this web sight representing the table. Had I seen the table I got with the faces of not so eye pleasing lions, I would have never ordered it.

This table is gorgeous. It has a little bit redder hew than in the picture. It is very sturdy and solid. Take note of the dimensions, it is not a small table. The carvings are beautiful. It came very well packed in double boxes with lots of padding. Even my teenage daughters friends are giving me compliments. I am very pleased with my purchase.
