The Mirror Map of Victoria Table
This stunning table has been lovingly hand tooled to realize the full
potential of the beautiful timber, by Artisan Geoff Simpson & team who
love to create a fusion with timber and recycled metal resulting in unique
pieces filled with history, character & life. The stand has been repurposed
from vintage horse drawn equipment. Specifically the legs from the Tines of
Scarifier Plough circa 1950’s & the brackets from a Chisel Plough circa 1950’s.
The Tines are resting on solid Red Gum Slabs, held insitu by iron horse shoe
nails circa 1950’s. This unique piece of living art can be yours at $1,650.
