Early 19th Century Chinese Export Sewing Table / Work Table
A very fine quality Chinese export lacquer work table. The lid lifts to reveal compartments for needlework tools and storage. The detail of the lacquer work is quite incredible and the whole table is profusely covered, even the inside of the legs and the stretcher. The top is worn, but the exceptional quality and condition of the decoration to the rest of the piece more than makes up for this. This work table comes apart by the use of thumb screws underneath, so it was designed for travelling and perhaps even a campaign piece. The proportions, end support and the shape of the top would indicate an early date of manufacture as well as giving this table very pleasing lines with thin sections and a narrow frieze. There are some repairs to the legs which are a bit wobbly but can be repaired. Please let us know if you need more photos and contact us to discuss your restoration requirements of course.

Early 20th Century Freestanding Rosewood Antique Centre Table
Very fine quality early 20th century antique centre table made of exceptional quality timber and with very intricate inlay. This table was a wedding present for the original owner and has been in the same family ever since. At a time when a lot of furniture was mass produced, very fine quality furniture of this sort had become impossibly expensive. This represents the last period of truly great cabinetmaking before centuries of knowledge were lost in the war along with the skilled craftspeople, great furniture companies and the wonderful timbers that went with them. This is a really fine table, the price of which in no way reflects its true value. The timber alone would now cost more to buy than the table itself. This table is freestanding with the same decoration to all sides.

Early 19th Century Regency Mahogany Antique Bed Side Table / Night Stand / End Table / Wine Table
Early 19th century regency mahogany antique bedside cupboard. This cupboard has good Regency proportions with slender legs and good dovetails. The casters and handles appear to be original. The legs are simulated bamboo which was a popular device at the time, pioneered and made famous by Brighton Pavilion and the Prince Regent. This bedside cupboard is very versatile having lift up leaves each side as, but more unusual it had two drawers one side and a fold down cupboard door on the reverse. A very elegant and useful piece of furniture.

19th Century Arts And Crafts Antique Wine Table / Lamp Table
19th century antique wine table or lamp table with pine base and oak top. The pine is a good quality straight grained variety with no knots, the top is made of oak inlaid with several other timbers inlaid with marquetry in a series of concentric star shapes around a central pointed star. Nice to see four legs rather than three. This is a fun and functional hand made table that is far cheaper than it should be for a table of this age and quality.

Antique work box or sewing table
Antique work box / sewing table made of a choice cut of oak with crossbanding made of top quality rosewood. This is a very rare combination of timbers and especially for this period. Bear in mind that this is not vernacular piece and neither was it made in a Victorian factory. This is a precision made Regency piece of furniture with hand cut dovetails typical of the pre Victorian period. This table has two drawers as well as the bottom deep sampler drawer. The top drawer has a sliding and lift out tray with dividers for different threads or implements. The sampler drawer has a very clever locking mechanism which prevents it from opening if the middle drawer is not open. The reverse of this table is finished with oak and crossbanding to make it totally freestanding.
English circa 1820 £2,250
Antique tripod table
Antique tripod table / wine table / lamp table dating from the George III period. This table is made of really good dense mahogany with interesting grain pattern. The pie crust edge is also raised, a very labour intensive process. A raised pie crust edge is a decorative feature that can also help prevent things falling off the table top. The base is a good slender early design with rope twist column and good generous splay to the legs.
