Early 19th Century Regency Mahogany Antique Dressing Table / Serving Table / Side Table

Early 19th century Regency mahogany antique dressing table or side table standing on the classic Gillow leg. This design of leg is found in the Gillow pattern books and the quality of the timber and construction is also very much Gillows. There are three drawers in the frieze and the sides and base of the drawers is also of the best quality mahogany. This table is usefully narrow front to back and is equally useful in a hallway, bedroom, drawing room or dining room.

18th Century George III Period Mahogany Antique Folding Tea Table

18th century mahogany antique folding tea table. This table stands on four square taper legs typical of the George III period. The decoration is also typical of the late 18th century with a flame mahogany panel, stringing around the edges of the top and the front panels and with plume of feathers motifs and oval flower inlays at the top of the legs. This tea table is a good small size and would be useful as a side table, wine table or sofa table to fit any spot, while also having the minimum twenty four inch knee clearance required for comfortable dining.

19th Century Antique Side Table Attributed to Gillow

19th century mahogany serving table, side table or dressing table with gallery to stop things falling off the back. This is very useful for all applications, but especially when used as a dressing table as it stops the mirror being pushed too far back. The beauty of this table is in the elegant lines and the deliberate lack of embellishment. There is no superfluous carving, no cockbeading and no gold trim. It is not the superficial things that make this table stand out from the rest, it the intrinsic qualities. It is the quality of the timber with the wonderful grain pattern, it is the mahogany drawer linings, is the the precision construction that means that the drawers run smoothly with no need for cock beading. This table has slender legs, a thin frieze and nice pair of handles. Who could ask for more.

Antique Washstand

Antique washstand made of a really good cut of Cuban mahogany. This useful side table is designed to have a bowl for washing in the centre, but it might be fun to find a way of plumbing it in with taps and drain etc for glamorous teeth cleaning or a posh wash. There are two drawers, one each side of the central dummy drawer. Handles are original turned mahogany. The timber is dry from years of not being looked after, once we have waxed it with bees wax it will be a wonderful rich colour again which can be achieved without totally repolishing. The timber and construction are consistant with that used by Gillow which makes this table well above the ordinary.

Antique side table

Early antique side table made of well figured oak. This table is extremely unusual as it has a fold over top that means it can double as a card table, tea table or writing desk.
When open the top is supported by a leg that swings open on a knuckle joint hidden in the centre of the back.
This is a charming early 18th century side table that our restorers have finished by polishing it with natural beeswax.

This is a really fine example of a lowboy from the age of walnut. Interestingly it is partly finished at the back and the molding runs all the way around the top as if it was intended to be free standing. Another great feature is the double cock beading. This has been applied to the outside of the drawer area rather than to the drawer itself. This table has fine colour and patination which will improve further with beeswax. English circa 1710 £3,800
