This table sold through iNVISeDGE for $550 in 2007. Today in 2019 I’d price the exact same table in iNVISeDGE at around $795- authentic deco tables in this design are extremely rare. (They’ve done similar replicas but they’re not half as nice.)

This table was sold to be used on the set of the “Australia” movie (released in 2008). I watched the movie but didn’t see my table. I have to admit I could have missed it because I wasn’t paying a lot of attention. The movie was quite painful to sit through- I’m sorry to anyone who is reading this and was involved in the production. I loved the sets and costumes but it takes more than that to make a movie. The story-line didn’t seem to develop and I found I didn’t care what did or what didn’t happen. I was not only disappointed in the movie but because I didn’t my table!

The table was supposed to come back to me after filming wrapped-up but I was later told that Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin ended up putting it in their own home. Don’t get me wrong- they paid me $550 for it but I was supposed to pay around the same to get it back. I had another buyer bitterly disappointed they didn’t act fast enough (it happens a lot)- the other buyer was prepared to pay $750 for it. I don’t blame Baz and CM for keeping it- it’s a little stunner! I’d have something like this in my own home in a second (in the right type of house). In a mountains home or cottage- it’d be perfect!

Provenance & Background Info

(I can’t find the description I wrote for this piece back in 2007.)

If you have a similar item to sell AND YOU’RE A DEALER (you have an antique shop or market stall) I’d be very happy to list an item of this callibre online in iNVISeDGE (and sell it for around $795). YOU PAY NO COMMISSION FEE– you just pay us what you feel after you’ve had a good week (when you want to). We will work at bringing new clientele into your shop or your market stall. We’d need about 10 photos from all angles- your photos would have to be about as good as those shown in this listing. If you don’t have a shop and you’re a dealer, we’d also stock an item like this online in iNVISeDGE, we’d find an online buyer for you and take control of the sales process on your behalf- in this case our commission fee would be around 18.5%. Again we’d need about 10 good photos from various angles- at least as good as those shown in this listing.

VIEWINGS, PICK-UP and Delivery Freight Info ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This item is located in SYDENHAM, 8km South of SYDNEY City. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ VIEWINGS . . . of furniture items will usually be possible (all furniture is in storage though). Send me a question and your phone number and/or email address if the photos and description don’t meet your needs. I can arrange an agent to go to the storage site if needed. Read my 1150+ ebay feedback comments (ALL for vintage furniture/decor SALES-100 or so are from repeat customers). I have had no negative feedback in over 15 years selling on ebay and this has been my full-time occupation. This is your guarantee that I work hard to describe my stock as accurately as possible and will not stock items I can’t personally recommend. Some items I acquire don’t end up in iNVISeDGE because they don’t make the grade. (I sell these under a different user-name on ebay.) I have had furniture items go all over the world (sight unseen) and do everything that’s reasonably possible to make my customers happy with their choice to support my business. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ PICK-UP . . . is accepted- professional delivery is preferred. This item is heavy and will require 2 strong people for pick-up. PLEASE NOTE- I live in Brisbane and run this business from Brisbane. PICK-UPS and VIEWINGS will be facilitated by a sub-contractor (someone who is NOT an employee of iNVISeDGE). I recommend that customers use a specialist furniture carrier for larger furniture items- these people know what they’re doing and come with what’s needed to look after your investment. I’ve seen too many customers try to force things in the back of 4WDs or put something in a trailer not protected. (If you’re hiring a trailer it makes no sense- the cost of professional delivery is comparable to hiring the trailer!) ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ We help customers with freight arrangements in every way we can BUT booking in transit (and paying for freight) is the responsibility of THE BUYER. I made a conscious choice to get rid of my vehicle in 2009 (for environmental reasons) so I have a depth of experience in the area of furniture freight. I will inform all iNVISeDGE customers of the transport carriers best suited to their job, what each carrier charges and their strengths. CUSTOMERS WILL BOOK IN THEIR OWN FREIGHT so they’re in control of what’s happening and will know exactly what’s going on. At any time though customers have the option to consult with us. Our experience in the area will ensure you’re looked after and the freight process will be seamless and easy. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ A ROUGH IDEA OF FREIGHT PRICES by specialist professional FURNITURE carriers. . . LOCAL DELIVERIES tend to be ABOUT $70 to $100 for a ONE-MAN delivery (for ONE standard sized item eg. 3.5-seater sofa or a set of 6 dining chairs). If you live over 25km away from the item, delivery will be AROUND $120 but it depends on various factors such as access issues and when you can receive the item. Sydney is a little more expensive compared to Brisbane (as another example) . . . . . . . “Normal” INTERSTATE DELIVERY (eg. Brisbane to Sydney OR Melbourne to Sydney) is generally about $250 for ONE standard-sized item (eg. a 3.5-seater sofa or a set of 6 dining chairs but it can depend on various factors. Sometimes it will be cheaper- $250 is about the average. Smaller items are less than $250. If you have a really big sofa (as an example) it will usually be around $280. These prices are given so you have a rough idea of whether interstate delivery might be an option for you. If you are unsure about it all please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
