Fernand Dresse was a painter and furniture designer from Belgium.  He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels and was student of Loius Buisseret.  His work included portraits, figures, landscapes and flowers.  The organic elements from his paintings were an inspiration for the furniture he designed later in his life.

These are brass etched cocktail tables by Fernand Dresse  featuring two inlays of Agate stone. The hand etching is beautiful and reminiscent of wood grain.  The texture flows out to the rounded edges and the shape of the table fits perfectly with the design of the top.   The combination of metal, stone, texture and petrified wood for a base is gorgeous.  This cocktail table can be a centerpiece in well designed space.
