I ordered this small stand with drawer, because I thought from the picture it was all black with white inlaid mother of pearl.
It is a "ladies" theme if you have googled other pieces from the same maker. I think I would have preferred the flowers theme more - this one has multi-colored mother of pearl shells anyhow - the picture of the other style of pedestal gives a better picture of the top.
The hand painting of the shells is mainly good - the color of the shell is white, with a few green shells, and some shaded with pale pink, peach and tan. The shells themselves are pretty, and the construction of the furniture is fine. It came completely assembled and packaged carefully. The faces & painting of the ladies on the side of the furniture are lovely and well done. The larger ladies on the top of the piece, not so good at least on the particular one I received.

I purchase 5 of these tables all different and this one is the most beautiful. Color (main) is brown/black and carvings are color of wood, and the only other color is milk chocolate color. This color is a bit darker then the online photo. Like all handmade tables it has "imperfections" such as carving "mistakes". I love it and last piece of advice. .. wait for sale on all World Trade items.
This little table is great for what I needed next to my bed because I need to move it fairly often. The fact that it's so light is a big plus. I doubt if you can sit or stand on it, maybe a young child could.
I really like the unique look. I gave it 4 stars because the box it arrived in did not protect the table i.e. one layer of pretty thin cardboard which was caved in during shipping. As a result one of the tables "legs" is out of alignment and no way to fix it. You can't just pull it back into place. I chose not to send it back because I figured the same thing would happen again. In any case, the top of the table is still a flat surface so I can use it, and the bad leg doesn't show as much if I place it the right way. I wouldn't recommend this product though, not until the shipping problem is fixed. It's too bad because it's a nice product.
