Neoclassical Male Occasional Table
Good for specific applications
Like almost all Design Toscano statues, this one has an disagreeable "ghost-ish" color cast, but also it is easy to spray paint to correct that.
This is an unusual table, and a person would have to have a specific location or lifestyle that would make it acceptable to the average person's living room. It is perhaps more suited to a den or, I don't know.
For me, I had an outside garden #bay-type# window overlooking my back yard garden. It is a protected spot that never gets any rain or water from my sprinklers. It never freezes here in Southern California, so outside was fine. I took off the suction cups and the table top, put a layer of spray paint on the nude man, with some added "stone" texture, and with a pillar under him at just the right height #managed by using 16" stepping stones stacked up, he appears to be supporting the garden window.
I actually have a small "sculpture garden" and everyone comments on the man holding up the window above all the others, though he is not the centerpiece. I use the table top on my desk as a platform for writing so it's not wasted.

This product looks like a real antique art piece
That table looks very nice. I just don't like the fact that suction cups only are holding the glass top in place. It is a draw back since we cannot lift that table by the glass or we cannot trust that glass top to stay in place if some weight is not in balance on it.

Table is just what I wanted'
Having been a regular Toscano shopper for quite some time, I didn't hesitate to order this great table. Their quality is second to none and the value is wonderful. You cannot find items like this anywhere else. I have decided to order another one and they will become my bedside tables.
They are very sturdy and easy to care for. Quite the conversation piece too!
If you are thinking about this table, stop thinking and just order it. You will be glad you did.

it came excellently packed, and with more detail then I could see in the catalog
the neoclassical table came realy well packed. After opening and setting the glass on top I noticed that it had much greater detail than I could see from the catalog ad. I now plan to buy another one and put a larger piece of glass between the two for a library table.

Its all right for around the pool as it is very inexpensive looking.
Not something I would have in my home for quality.
Expensive shipping for quality of product.
