Veneered in gemstone grade Lapis. Originally commissioned by Armand Hammer during the cold war. A priceless part of Nathan Ancell's private collection (owner of Ethan Allen Furniture). I have never seen lapis that looked this beautiful, not even in jewelry. The beautiful gold pyrite and deep blues are unmatched in any piece of lapis I have ever seen. This belongs in a museum or a palace! Don't miss this chance to own the most beautiful and collectible pieces of furniture you have ever seen!
