Object Description

This is a very fine quality 18th century antique library ‘drum’ table. This library table has a rotating top which means lots of work spread over the writing surface can be accessed by simply spinning the top. The mahogany used to make this library table is a very fine cut with interesting grain pattern. Although pale in the photos, the timber will be good deep colour when our restorers have finished buffing with natural beeswax. Please let us know the depth of colour required for the top, as it can be left pale if this fits the application. This is one of the best drum tables we have seen for a while, with good early outstretched four splay base and moulding on the legs which runs into the shape of the caster caps. The top surface has crossbanding around the outside. The edge of the top has good close reeded edge typical of the pre Regency period of Georgian furniture design.
