19th Century Regency Rosewood Antique Sofa Table

Antique Regency Rosewood Sofa Table 24d 57½w 37w 28high 11.JPG

Early nineteenth century Regency rosewood antique sofa table. It is impossible to convey adequately how exquisite this table is without resorting to expletives. Instead, here is a list of some of its good points. This table is made of exotic, expensive and very fine cut of rosewood which has faded to a desirable golden colour. It has crossbanding, it has double stringing round the top, it has Greek key pattern in boxwood. It is very narrow in depth. It has almost perfect forty five degree angle splay to the legs, which run to parallel with the floor at the end. It has very narrow frieze and thin supports that elevate it above a normal sofa table. It has precision hand cut dovetails on all four corners of each drawer. It has drawer linings made of finest mahogany. It has two end supports each side instead of just one. It is free standing with false drawers on the reverse. Restoration is included in the price. Let us know your requirement.

Howard And Sons Chair

Antique Howard And Sons Grafton Chair _3.JPG

Antique easy armchair, this is an unusually large version of the Grafton model made by Howard and Sons of Berners Street in London. This is one of the more elegant designs with serpentine back and flat base, the long low arms flow in a waterfall manner down to the front leg. This model has a higher front leg than back to give the correct rake to the seat. This is one of the most comfortable models made by Howard and that is saying something.

19th Century Regency Mahogany Twin Pedestal Antique Dining Table

Twin Pedestal Antique Regency Mahogany Dining Table 145cm 57W 74cm 29H 236cm 93L w leaf 208cm 82L wo leaf  _17.JPG

Early 19th century Regency mahogany twin pedestal dining table. This table is a very impressive scale which might not be immediately apparent from the photographs. The top is made of large sections of very finely figured mahogany with reeding around the double edged top, typical of Irish furniture made by Williams, Mack and Gibton of Dublin. The pedestals are strong yet restrained in design. There are very interesting icanthus swags to the top of each "Regency knee" which fall to one side à la Flock of Seagulls. The shape of the legs is very fine, with thin ankles that run very close to the floor before raising slightly back up to the very detailed hairy paw feet. The timber has faded to a very fine golden colour while retaining a very high degree of patina. Please ask for restoration options, this table can be repolished if required and extra leaves can be fitted to extend the length.

18th century George III period mahogany antique armchair or desk chair. This chair is made of good well figured mahogany with good deep patina. The carving is generous and finely executed and the seat is wide and deep for this sort of chair. The seat is of the drop in format which allows for easy re-upholstery.

There is also a turned platform on the stretchers, perhaps for a washing bowl. The mahogany chosen for this antique night stand is a really good cut of timber with an interesting grain pattern that is sometimes referred to as plum pudding mahogany.
