Stock No. 1218/2022/qsa

 

A late 19th century mahogany SOFA TABLE with two flaps and two drawers to the front and two matching dummy-drawer fronts to the rear. All with original circular brass drop ring handles.

The fine figured top is bordered by a mahogany and boxwood frieze with a reeded edge, as is each drawer front. The two flaps fold down and the lopers fold away significantly reducing its size and impact. The whole top is supported on two mahogany pillars, one to each side, with a turned x-stretcher to provide strength. Each pillar in turn splits into two fluted mahogany legs, which taper, terminating in four original brass claw feet, complete with brass castors.
